This Distribution Element specification describes a standard 
message distribution framework for data sharing among emergency 
information systems using the XML-based Emergency Data Exchange 
Language (EDXL). This format may be used over any data 
transmission system, including but not limited to the SOAP HTTP 
binding. The primary purpose of the Distribution Element is 
to facilitate the routing of any properly formatted XML emergency 
message to recipients. The Distribution Element may be thought 
of as a "container". It provides the information to route 
"payload" message sets (such as Alerts or Resource Messages), 
by including key routing information such as distribution type, 
geography, incident, and sender/recipient ID's.
