d. A clear English-language summary of the specification (from
   the specification's Abstract):
  This specification defines a communications-protocol neutral method
  for exchanging electronic business messages. It defines specific Web
  Services-based enveloping constructs supporting reliable, secure
  delivery of business information. Furthermore, the specification
  defines a flexible enveloping technique, permitting messages to
  contain payloads of any format type. This versatility ensures legacy
  electronic business systems employing traditional syntaxes (i.e.
  UN/EDIFACT, ASC X12, or HL7) can leverage the advantages of the ebXML
  infrastructure along with users of emerging technologies.

e. A statement regarding the relationship of this specification to
   similar work of other OASIS TCs or other standards developing

  This specification is the first major revision of ebXML Message
  Services since the OASIS ebMS 2.0 (April 2002).  It continues the
  use of relevant Web Services specifications, including SOAP 1.1 and
  SOAP with Attachments; and also encourages the use of and converge
  with various Web Services standards that have emerged since the
  publication of ebMS 2.0, including SOAP 1.2, Web Services Security:
  SOAP Message Security 1.0 & 1.1, WS-Reliability 1.1, WS-
  ReliableMessaging 1.1.

  It is designed to be used either with or without any of the other
  ebXML components, including ebXML Business Process Specification
  Schema (BPSS) 2.0.4 and a forthcoming version of ebXML Collaboration
  Protocol Profile and Agreement (CPP/A).

f. Statements of Use have been provided by three OASIS member companies:
Fujitsu Computer Systems
Axway Inc
NEC Corporation

g. Two Public Reviews have been held:
  12 May 2006 through 11 June 2006
