Here is the abstract I submitted at the last minute. It was posted for 
the general session and MAY not quite fit the specialized nature of the 
call from Jane for TC updates.
I certainly did not have Jane's call in mind when I did the abstract.

In any event here is the abstract text...

Title: Managing Schemalets Using the OASIS ebXML Registry

Brief Session Description:

This paper describes how fine grained XML Schema artefacts (referred to 
as Schemalets) may be published, managed, discovered, reused and 
assembled into larger XML Schemas with the help of an ebXML Registry.

Technical Needs: No special needs.


The rise in adoption of XML has led to a proliferation of XML 
Vocabularies. These XML Vocabularies are typically expressed in schema 
languages such as XML Schema and Relax NG. Such XML Vocabularies tend to 
be composed of finer grained definitions of vocabulary elements such as 
definitions of namespaces, attributes, types and elements.

These vocabulary building block elements are referred to in this paper 
as /Schemalets/ or mini-schemas.

Organizations are finding that in the absence of proper tools, XML 
Vocabularies are being developed in an ad hoc manner with little 
coordination. This creates much duplication of effort resulting in 
inconsistent and incompatible XML Schemas. Often there are multiple 
schemalets for representing the same information element.

The paper shows an XML Vocabulary Management application of the ebXML 
Registry that is used as a tool to address the problems created by ad 
hoc development of XML Vocabularies. The tool uses the content and 
metadata management capabilities of an ebXML Registry to manage 
Schemalets, facilitate their discovery and subsequent reuse when 
assembled into complete schemas.

The intended audience includes those that are interested in XML tools 
and specifically XML Vocabulary Management tools. This includes systems 
architects, developers as well as managers. The paper assumes moderate 
technical background in XML and Wed Services. However, anyone with 
little or no technical background will be able to understand the 
business aspects of the presentation.

The audience is first introduced to the concepts behind XML Vocabulary 
development and the common problems when XML Vocabulary is developed in 
an ad hoc manner.

Next, a set of requirements are identified for a tool that manages XML 
Vocabulary elements.

With this introduction, much of the remainder of the paper then 
describes in detail the /Schemalet Manager Application/ and shows how it 
meets the requirements identified and addresses the problems identified 
in Vocabulary Management.

The paper concludes with an assessment of how well the /Schemalet 
Manager Application/ met its objectives, identifies areas for 
improvement in the application as well as ebXML Registry standard and 
shares some useful links.
