Subject: Re: [ubl-comment] Public Comment

You are correct about the more common spelling being Dispatch.  But the 
current spelling was taken to align with the UN/EDIFACT document of the 
same name.  

You may also note that UBL follows the ebXML rule of using the Oxford 
English Dictionary as its reference.
