I am not sure how you characterize a candidate specification but
EDXL-HAVE was submitted in the format that the EM TC requested - as a
requirements specification - and not as a candidate specification. 

As I see it, the practitioners/SMEs do know their area best - I do not
believe that will change - we should recognize this and work with the
practitioners to leverage their domain expertise.
