Interesting - it looks a little too light weight, and seems at first
site seems to be more of a container for a taxonomy schema than a
taxonomy schema. I'm sure it could be adapted. I know one of the
authors, so will contact him over how well (or not) and how this is used
(it hasn't moved much since 2001 though...)

Thanks - I'd forgotten these! Both of these are, I believe, proprietary
formats (and not that well documented beyond their existence as far as I
can tell) for loading the catagories into the UDDI registry. This could
well be used in the context of Max's proposal, although I'm still a
little concerned about scalability of just pointing to a large XML
document for the taxonomy, though.

It occurred to me that a standard format for importing and exporting
categories to/from UDDI would be useful even outside this technote. I
had a quick look through the V3 spec.s pertaining to Inter-Node
operation (Ch 7) and note that there is nothing in their about how nodes
would synchronise their taxonomies (unless I've missed it) - is this
deemed out of scope or perhaps a V4 feature?

There may be similar issues when records are being moved between
different registries (Ch 8).
