Subject: RE: [tax] Groups - Extra TC telecon added

To jump start the  "XML standard" description discussion I pulled these
from a presentation on XML Standards convergence from the American
Petroleum Institute
We can pick the appropriate points to use in our paper.

Analysis View
*	Provide a well-defined methodology and set of constructs to
model business domain entities (customer, invoice, etc.)
*	Not coupled to XML syntax
*	Concerned with semantic interoperability ('carrier' vs.
'carrier' vs. 'carrier')
*	Think UML (Unified Modeling Language) 
*	Think Data Dictionaries

Technical view
*	Provide the rules and guidelines to create XML business messages
*	Provide the mechanisms by which those messages can be
transported 'over the wire'
*	Concerned with transport interoperability
*	Coupled to XML syntax

Subject: [tax] Groups - Extra TC telecon added

Extra TC telecon has been added by Mr. Harm-Jan van Burg

Date:  Wednesday, 24 August 2005
Time:  04:00pm - 06:00pm ET

Event Description:
the call info will be provided as soon as possible

This extra conference call is nessesary because the discussions about
the position paper take so much time that the deadline for the OECD
meeting in Stochholm is in real danger. As a matter of fact The deadline
for sending in papers for that meeting was  august 15 so we are already
a bit late. I extended our time to september 1. Although the meeting
itself is on september 14/15, sending in too late means that country
representatives cannot prepaire properly so no decission can be taken
and we lose a whole year.

I have noticed that part of the discussion in the last telecon is a
duplicate of the Philadelphia meeting. This cannot be the case. Besides
that we take much time to discuss the OECD developments STF and SAF. In
both cases no standards by any OASIS definition and even not by our own
defination. Next to this: we have limited influence here. Both the OECD
groups who are responsible for these producs repeadedly stressed that
they had their own decisionmaking proces. Especially STF has up till now
never changed anything because we have an opinion. So we go back to our
initial position about STF and SAF with some minor modifications or we
skip all the paragraphs concerning.
Reaching concensus is a fine thing and my aim from the onstart but we
can use the voting mechanism.

So wednesday teleconference covers only the position paper. We will
discuss in principal only concrete text proposals.

Last chance to bring in tekst proposals is Monday 8 pm Eastern time.
