Title: RE: [regrep] Minutes of today's meeting
Maybe I'm just confused and not following this discussion accurately, but once again, I fear we are confusing registry content with the data registered. Core Components and UBL vocabulary items, if someone chooses to register them, fall into the latter category. Only their metadata goes in the registry. Tell me if I've got it all backwards.

Thanks for your thoughts - I always appreciate and value your insight.

I wonder if the requirements of the 2 representations of "Organization" are vastly different, due to their purposes.  For a vocabulary such as UBL, there may be a need to identify an Organization to a finer level of detail then a registry.  A registry may require only very high-level information (as our RIM does, with Address, Parent, Primary Contact, and Phone #'s), while in a transactional environment it may be required to exchange more detailed Organizational information between parties (such as the countries in whicih the organization does business, etc.).

Because of its purpose, the CIQ information is (as you know) very fine-grained.  I would not imagine that in a registry, one would want/need to include such fine-grained name and address information (it might be overkill).

Ah, I see...so, for instance, if the UBL representation of Organization and
the registry class for organization matched, the registry could potentially
accept a UBL transaction containing Organization information as a means to
create an instance of an Organization class within the registry, thereby
alleviating the need for a user to enter this information.  The same could
apply for class PostalAddress, class PersonName, etc.


Forgive me for saying this - it appears to be the tail wagging the dog.

UBL should be following the Registry organization definitions, and
if they have issues with those - should be making a proposal to
Registry on it.

Also - OASIS CIQ TC is creating core component definitions of
address, person and organization - so really that again would
be where one would expect this detail to harmonize - since that
is the exact scope for the CIQ work in the first place!

Since the OASIS CIQ has participation from USPS, USGov and
other groups reviewing such standards I suggest they definately
represent a strong authority on such definitions.

I'm not sure what policy UBL has - but one would expect them
to defer such technical matters to existing domain groups -
and especially when the domain group happens to be an

Cheers, DW.
