Subject: RE: [regrep] Draft abstract for OASIS Symposium submission - please review!
Please see comments in the e-mail below, marked with [JMC]. Here is also some additional feedback: (1) COMMENT PERTAINS TO: "New technologies enable us to create and use dynamic information through the web, including XML (eXtensible Markup Language) Schemas, DTDs (Document Type Definitions), Core Components, and Web Services." COMMENT: I think we can have a stronger, more event-focused opening statement here: - Recommend we start by emphasizing the high value of electronic business vocabularies (or whatever terms we want to use in front of "vocabularies"), as they ensure a greater degree of interoperability between business partners and enable reuse of information artifacts on a grand scale. - Then follow with the notion of the need to manage the artifacts that comprise a vocabulary, and make them discoverable and available (please pick which word you like of the 2) to developers at design-time, and interacting business partners at run-time. - Then follow with the questions you already have ("How do we discover and share these assets...", etc.) (2) COMMENT PERTAINS TO: "Where can we discover assets to be used in our applications so that we can..." COMMENT: Make this first in the list of questions (since it is very descriptive), and incorporate the notion of vocabularies. (3) COMMENT PERTAINS TO: "including XML elements, XML schemas, DTDs, core components and other assets..." COMMENT: Include Web Services in list (4) COMMENT PERTAINS TO: "An ebXML registry provides a resource for describing, discovering and using information assets that enable electronic business and application integration." COMMENT: This is highly duplicative of the immediately preceding sentence. This is highly duplicative of the immediately preceding sentence. Recommend harmonizing the 2 sentences, or choosing one over the other. (5) COMMENT PERTAINS TO: "The advantage of using XML objects and resources can only be realized if they are registered and accessible for discovery and use. Finding and using these electronic assets is critical in a global environment where business is conducted electronically." COMMENT: This is such an excellent point, that it should be moved higher up, to the first paragraph. Now, please read on for comments in e-mail below marked with [JMC].

[JMC] An additional aspect would be in absence of the cooperating registries feature (i.e. pretend for a second that it did not exist), and the *collaboration* that the registry enables between developers and other types of users. I've emphasized the word collaboration because I noted that this word was absent from the abstract, and I believe it should be present.
