A similar issue has arisen wrt UML models in general.  I myself don't see
any reason XML.org should not want to host this material.  What format
are the implementation guidelines in?  (And I assume that the business process
definitions are the UML models for the PIPs; I've seen them only rendered
in PDF; are they to be stored in UML?)

That's good thinking on RN's part, and I hope we can help.

I'm not sure Biztalk actually is an alternative, unless you want to convert
everything to XDR.  And the Biztalk Framework is incompatible with the
most recent RNIF.

Bill Smith has been in Australia, but I expect he'll pick up this RN issue
soon.  If not, I'll remind him.
