Subject: Re: [regrep] Standards approval process


The document is not complete and there are problems that UN/CEFACT has 
clearly not addressed yet.  For that reason, I am stopping work on this 

joseph is correct  - the serialization is far more important than the 
storage.  Please get off this whole idea of how to map to the RIM until 
it is understood what the serialization will be.  There is a dependency 
on this and until this is solved, you and everyone else working on the 
storage are probably not spending your time well.

Some partial answers inline:


>how to represent an ABIE for example.
XML Schema can represent this.  There are things that XML Schema cannot 
do and those will be limitations.

>an ABIE normally is an aggregate of more simplest basic components and
>less simplest associations to others aggregate objects.
Associations may be represented in the registry but in a serialization, 
they can be expressed again using XML Schema (or XMI perhaps).

Not true.  It is still referencable via the UUID.

Not true - you can query the registry.

We actually wrote such an engine to help build documents out of CC's 
with context declarations.  It is not a trivial thing to do.

There is a lot of work that needs to be done.
