Subject: ebXML Core Components Comments Procedure


Can all formal comments regarding the draft core components paper entitled
"methodology for describing core components" be addressed primarily to
following recipients:

Lisa Shreve (CC Team leader) lms@wwnet.com <mailto:lms@wwnet.com> 
Sue Probert (joint editor) sue@ets-edi.compulink.co.uk
James Whittle (joint editor) james.whittle@e-centre.org.uk
Hisanao Sugamata (Author) hsedi@ibm.net <mailto:hsedi@ibm.net> 
Martin Byan (Author) mtbryan@sgml.u-net.com <mailto:mtbryan@sgml.u-net.com> 

Of coarse I would encourage comments on this document to be copied to the
listserve, but by following this procedure it enables formal comments to be
handled distinct from general ones.

The document is question can be found at the core components team site until
it is published on the public site.

Kind regards

James Whittle

		I've no problem with notes and examples imbedded in
'Description', and so

I do have a

appropriate to some

to refer to
		written documentation (I'd put it on-line and refer to it
via a URL).  The
		written documentation misght for example cover an entire
message or industry

		I'll give a 'maybe' to synonyms - 1) en:name and fr:name are
not synonyms.

		It is perhaps better to treat all 'synonyms' as 'almost
synonyms' and define

		P.S., 'DAMSAD'?  Now there's an unhappy acronym!

		A member of the CEN/ISSS DAMSAD project team suggests that
		ought to be able to have subcomponents of Notes and
Examples, and that the
		provision of Examples should be compulsory. In addition a
Synonyms field
		could be provided alongside the main Name field. What do
people think about
		these as possible extensions to the CoreComponents DTD and
do you consider
		they should form part of the data capture form or only be
options in the
		final database?

		At a UK-DHG meeting yesterday it was decided that the User
Community field
		needs to be split into two to capture details of Industry
Sector and
		Business Process separately. We would like to adopt a coding
scheme for
		identifying these, but do not feel that ISIC is adequate, or
than UNSPSC is
		ready. Can anyone suggest a suitable classification scheme
for identifying
		relevant industries and processes?
