Forgive the intrusion into your back-and-forth...

The first thing I think of when reading the above is, "Well, how do
other OASIS TC's handle this in their work?"  I looked at a few other
TCs (not very many... like 3) and those used a uniform top-level
element.  So, then I wonder "Is this because they have 'things' for
which a single top-level element makes sense?"  For example, CIQ uses
"Party" as their element... but I'm not sure if they deal with things
as complicated as we do.

For sure, while DW may now what the 100-600 series of EML do, I
don't... (maybe it's time I spent more time with the XSDs, docs and
other stuff!) best, Joe
