Subject: Re: [regrep-cc-review] Kickoff!
Joe, Having sat in thru CCTS meetings - the first thing that strikes you is that they have put a great deal of thought into creating a minimum function set - that thru recursion - satisfies their requirements. However - they have internalized this themselves - and its not entirely obvious how the chinese rings fits neatly together. I think if we focus narrowly on their spec', and do not take a broader view initially - then we will constrain ourselves artifically. Particularly - we need to realize that we are infact building the implementation layer for their conceptual layer. So very little in their spec' speaks to implementation mechanics - since they are focused on behaviours. In particular legacy migration of existing vocabularies is an area that I see we have where thru providing better mechanisms at the implementation layer we can facilitate adoption of our CCR/S specification. Notice this is separate and distinct from promoting adoption of CCTS. As a requirement I believe we are supporting CCTS, but not at the exclusion of everything else. We should have a broader goal - and then showing how CCTS semantics can also be captured and implemented too. As a strawman - something like : 1) providing XML constructs for the implementation of ebusiness vocabularies as physical nouns, and aggregates while enabling the deriving of conceptual core components and their crosswalks to the physical entities. 2) Supporting rendering implementation layer semantics with physical typing support and validation semantics for the business logical needs. 3) Providing classification and ontology support and conceptual typing for the design and modelling needs. 4) Providing interfacing to content assembly mechanisms using XML, and support for migrating legacy non-XML formats. 5) Providing search and discover support for tools that support enduser access to a vocabulary, or across vocabularies. 6) Enabling industries to share common vocabularies and develop better alignment of semantics for shared meanings across industries.
