Title: [uddi-spec] FW: [ebxml-jc] Changes for the <overviewURL>s in uddi-spec-tc-tn-uddi-ebxml-updatedoverviewURLs
I slipped and pressed Send before I was finished :-) Continuing...
Section bullets for E_unsupported and E_unvalidatable have "should" instead of "SHOULD"
Section I may have overlooked something, but I cannot see any way that the returned publisherAssertions structure can contain anything different from the supplied list of  publisherAssertion objects (assuming that set_publisherAssertions succeeds). Should we make a comment to that effect?
Section the diagram of the keyBag has the cardinality indicated on the sequence symbol, rather than on the key symbol, which makes it inconsistent with all the other diagrams. The cardinality should be moved to the key.
Section 5.5.12 first line: "Node" should be "node".
Section second paragraph, first line: "UDDI MUST reject" should probably be: "the UDDI node MUST reject".
Section generally arguments have been discussed in alphabetical order - is that important?
Section first line: "value values" should be "valid values".
Section everywhere else the error codes are listed without values (meaning that they could be changed without impact). Should we remove the values, such as "(10210)", from here?
Section 7.2.4 last paragraph, first sentence. I don't understand the sentence: "A comsuming node MAY reset the originating USN another value that had previously been requested for a given node." - I am guessing that a word is missing. Perhaps "to" should be inserted after "USN"?
Section 7.3.9 third paragraph (last one before the diagram) contains "...may be replicated with a given registry...". I think this should probably be "...may be replicated within a given registry...".
Section should it include the xml rendition of the success dispositionReport? This is redundant, and just one more thing we have to change, for example when the API version changes. I suggest deleting it.
Section there is no specification of the return message. Is it just the operatorNodeID? Or is it contained in something?
Section should we have a diagram of the return message with the highWaterMark vector?
Section 7.5.1, fourth last paragraph. "Thus, change datum can always be propagated..." should be "Thus, change data can always be propagated...", or possibly "Thus, changed data can always be propagated...".

Section omits description from the diagram for serviceInfo. I thought there was an approved CR requiring the addition of description to serviceInfo throughout?

Section is confusing. I found the pseudo-code difficult to decypher, and the presence of (first example) and (second example) in the table had me looking at the pseudo-code for two instances of the (case 4) label. I recommend, at least, removing the (first example) and (second example) comments from the table - trust the reader to work out that there are two examples.
I'd suggest re-writing the pseudo code as follows to make it easier to read:
1.      if x is a keygeneratorkey, and y is that key without the :keygenerator suffix, then:
1.a      if y is a domain key, then x is a top-level keygenerator, and has no keygeneratorkey
1.b      if y is a derived key, and z is the key on which it is based, then x's keygeneratorkey is z:keygenerator
2.      if x is a domainkey, then x's keygeneratorkey is x:keygenerator
3.      if x is a derivedkey, and y is the key on which it is based, then x's keygeneratorkey is y:keygenerator
this gets the nasty case out of the way first, and lets us glide over the question of whether a keygeneratorkey is a derived key (the earlier discussion suggests that it is not). If we use this pseudo-code, then the numeric references in the table become: 2, 1.a, 1.b, 3, 3.

Section 5.2.8 delete_business has footnote 21, which ends: ", or matching serviceKey values between businessService elements and bindingTemplate elements." - this suggests the possibility of bindingTemplate projections, which are not mentioned anywhere else in the standard that I've seen - I recommend removing this fragment from the footnote to avoid confusion.
Section  specifies the cardinality of the businessEntity list as 0 to infinity in the diagram, which disagrees with the text in which says "Required repeating element containing one or more". Clearly either the diagram or the text is wrong. I think the diagram should be corrected, for consistency with the other APIs.
Section third paragraph uses "different than", which is grammatically incorrect - should be "different from".
Section bullet points for E_invalidKeyPassed, E_unsupported, and E_unvalidatable mention "should" which should be "SHOULD" for consistency with the other bullets.
Section, first paragraph. "any empty uddiKey" should probably be "an empty uddiKey", given that the is only one in the tModel under consideration (the phrase is qualified with "If the new tModel...").
There are a number of places where the construct "publisher that" is used. These really should be "publisher who" - I can call out all the locations if required, but a global search/replace can do this equally well.
