Subject: RE: OASIS TC presentations at Orlando XML conference

Sounds good. Vendor track may be the way to go. I'd expect other OASIS ebXML
TCs to possibly do more on the talking side.

There's an e-commerce track, so that would be one idea.

And then there is the "vendor offerings" track, which is dedicated to
products. There are extra brownie points (i.e., it's easier to get on the
for vendors who demonstrate products that are standards-compliant and work 
together with products from other vendors. Proposals for the vendor track
due until October 1.
So I guess it depends on how much talking vs showing products you are
on. If lots of the latter, I'd put it in the vendor offerings area.

Does that sound reasonable?
