Subject: RE: Additional request from TC re: UBL Naming and Design Rules V3.0 public review - ends February 10th

It was my intention not to respond to any comment until the end of the comment period, but I felt it important to respond to this particular early comment in case other readers would be misled as to the committee's need to ask about the title.

What is wrong with current title?

It has been interpreted that the NDR can only be used to produce UBL artefacts.

It seems to precisely state what the document does.

That's exactly the problem, it doesn't. It has been interpreted by some readers as applying only to UBL and has not been interpreted simply as coming from the UBL TC.

It happens to be true that these NDR were used when creating UBL, but these rules were also used when creating the OASIS Business Document Envelope (BDE), which also was modeled using CCTS 2.01.

Anyone modeling their documents using CCTS 2.01 has the choice of using these NDR to create artefacts if they find the properties of the artefacts are attractive to their use of business documents.

There is another UBL committee work product, a Committee Note, being created that details the application of these NDR specifically to create the UBL artefacts. That is because such is out of scope of this NDR document.

I do not understand why a UBL document would be renamed to be something else -

Because the current title is not being properly understood by readers of prior drafts of the document.

how would people then know what the UBL naming and design is, if its not called UBL?

By being more precise to be titled as an NDR applicable to any use of CCTS 2.01 or ebXML part 5 for modeling. That is the subject material of this work product. As indicated, there are no proposed changes to the body of the document, only the title.

Nowhere in this NDR document does it talk about the actual creation of the UBL artefacts, it is only a set of naming and design rules for creating a set of artefacts from any model of CCTS 2.01 / ebXML Part 5.

The current NDR title is being interpreted by some readers as encompassing the content of both committee work products, whereas an improved title for the NDR would not give the incorrect implication that the NDR can only be used for UBL artefacts and for nothing else. As mentioned above, another OASIS committee has already used these NDR to create a set of artefacts that are not UBL artefacts.

The title is exactly the source of the problem that some readers have regarding the scope of the use of the document.

And so the committee is soliciting feedback regarding a more appropriate title of this work.
