Subject: Re: EDXL Resource Message

Thanks Jon,

We look forward to your input.  We will be having an intense face-to-face 
meeting of the Msg/Notification Subcommittee that is working the Resource 
Messaging effort May 9-11 in San Francisco.  It would be great if we could 
have your input in time to consider at those meetings.  If you are 
available, maybe you could come in for a visit and impart some wisdom to 
the group as we work to develop the Draft Specification and consider these 
issues.  Tim Grapes and Rex Brooks will be defining the agenda for this 
portion of our work.
