Subject: Re: [regrep] RE: [uddi-spec] ebXML Registry / UDDI Convergence

Here is my $0.02 worth.

I feel that it is necessary that the two converge (* qualified statement
- read below).  A single registry methodology for B2B and A2A is akin to
a single DNS resolving methodology for the internet.

I also feel that the main barrier to this will not be technical in
nature, it will be political.  A lot of people have done a lot of
*really* great work in UDDI and eXML specs.  The whole issue of "You
merge into us" vs. "We merge into you" is likely to emerge as a
contentious issue.

I urge everyone to take 5 minutes,  appreciate all the work that has
gone into each of the different specs, then ask yourself "Does it really
serve the end user to have two different registry specifications?".  If
we can go forward and assess this on a purely intellectual level, I feel
that most will respond "no" and agree that gradually converging the two
standards into a new standard that can perform all the functionality of
both registries is in the best interest of the end users.  I mention the
"end user" becuase that is who we ultimately are working for.  

This would take the world one step closer to true B2B and A2A

However, that's just the ramblings of this Canadian.
