Subject: Re: [ubl] Procurement Models for UBL 2.0

I think in the interests of time it best if I answer now.  if i am in 
error then soemone can correct me.

In July the UBL TC agreed to the Model Architecture for UBL 2.0.  there 
is no plan (and we are too far down the path) to change this.

The minutes of Pacific UBL TC call 11|12 July 2005 state:

i should also point out that we still have to refine the actual contents 
of these libraries - but these are ongoing (and continuous) refinements.

for example, i would not expect many common library ABIEs to associate 
with context-specific ABIEs (such as in the procurement library).  a 
case in point is the problem you noted with "Branch" in common 
associating to "Financial Institution" in procurement.  I suspect this 
needs correction and that the "Branch" actully belongs in procurement as 

from an EDIFIX point of view, it would be safest to assume that any ABIE 
can reference any other ABIE whever it appears in the UBL spreadsheet
