Subject: [wsia] RE: Responding to your Request for HumanML Information

Hi Suresh,

I am copying the TC list with this because I think it is probably a 
good idea to clarify this point.

HR-XML is an entire consortium unto itself and has nothing to do with 
HumanML, except that there is potential overlap which we in 
HumanMarkup must account for in our work. HR-XML is pretty thoroughly 
dedicated to business applications for Human Resources Departments, 
so I would encourage you to use their schema in that context. Also, 
for the purposes of the WSIA, HR-XML ought to be consulted in some 
fashion for harmonizing data exchange mechanisms at the least, and 
many other areas of overlap with regard to Web Services. I don't 
think HR-XML is aimed at, or likely to engage in, areas beyond their 
limited charter. So, I wouldn't think that they would be producing 
personalization profiles, except in terms of employee records 

I can't at the moment volunteer to do that, but since it is on my 
longer term agenda, I will be looking into this area more completely 

I hope this clarifies the situation.
