Stella,

I don't think you necessarily want ISO 25964 mapped directly to SBVR, but
perhaps the other way around. (Debatable either way)

What you DO definitely want is make sure that your working group is in
contact with someone at http://www.cenorm.be/isss/ (a liaison of OMG) where
that contact is already very familiar with SBVR and it's application
currently concerning information exchange of business data.
