Duane Nickull, ed. of Architecture, wrote: "This Technical Architecture Specification is not meant for a casual reader as much as it is for the technical audience. The Education, Marketing and Awareness Project Team will write a more abstract level document, specifically geared towards outsiders, that will explain the workings of ebXML for that audience." Duane: I don't think we in the Marketing, Awareness, and Education Project Team will be writing any such document, abstract or not. Unless I missed something in all of our meetings - which is possible, since I fall asleep a lot. We're geared up only for the most bird's-eye view stuff re: ebXML, such as FAQs, press releases, 20 second elevator pitches, and giving half hour presentations. We will not be editing the specifications coming out of the other technical groups, except perhaps to lend a hand, if asked, to give each document a common look-and-feel. We (MAE) would not be any more likely to write heavily technical specifications than DISA would write X12 manual prose - that's up to the volunteers in the technical subcommittees to do. I have already indicated that I have had some trouble understanding the document and discerning the architecture. I may be somewhat slow and plodding, but I am not a casual reader. William J.
