An important correction. I had forgotten that we had removed the ebMS 
binding from ebXML Registry 3.0 specs in the last couple of months . The 
reasons where:

-The current specs on ebMS binding were severely underspecified

-The current specs on ebMS binding were based on older versions of ebMS

-We had no one in TC who was willing to do the heaving lifting to fix 
the spec for ebMS binding in a compressed timeframe

-The regrep TC needed to get version 3.0 wrapped up

We have definitely seen a demand for ebMS Binding for the registry. We 
plan to add ebMS binding in a future version of the spec assuming we 
will get the help we need to do so. One of the biggest issues is that we 
need to get a template CPA defined for registry and registry client.
If anyone in the ebMS or ebCPPA TC are interested in helping define the 
ebMS binding please let me know. We can issue it as a separately 
approved normative document at any time independent of the core spec.

So at present there are only 2 normative bindings to ebXML Registry 3.0: 

My apologies for the inadvertant mistake in my previous email. Thanks.
