Subject: RE: [regrep] Object Relocation Vs. Object Export Facility

Perhaps John would like to provide as a short point paper with an
example showing both methods?

Subject: [regrep] Object Relocation Vs. Object Export Facility


I had received the following suggestion from John Silva of Philips.

John suggested that it may be more useful to have a  more reusable lower

level primitive capability to "Export" registry content based on 
specified criteria (e.g. export whole registry, export objects owned by 
a user). The corresponding ability to import the content may be 
fulfilled by the existing SubmitObjectRequest.

The proposal form John further states that we should replace the 
currently planned Object Relocation protocol with the simpler and more 
reusable Object Export capability.

I am very supportive of this proposal despite the fact that it involves 
some rework. The Object Relocation protocol is very complex and involves

registry-registry communication as well as distributed transactions over

multiple registries. John's suggested replacement of Object Relocation 
with Object Export greatly simplifies the specification and 
implementations while still supporting the intended use cases.

I would like to hear your thoughts on this proposed change. If there is 
no dissent then I would like to rework this area of the spec. If there 
is some dissent then I requests that this issue be put to vote.

John, please chime in if I mis-communicated any of your suggestion. 
Thanks for this valuable suggestion.
