My response to this is the same as to Hao's WSDL harvesting; those
are all roles which components can play (except for maybe Role and
Action? not sure).  We'd have to look at a deployment to see how
those roles are implemented in software.

I've thought hard about this one.  Yes, I think both of those contribute
to the semantics of an ebXML connector (as I understand the role of a
BSI), though they aren't themselves connectors.  But if we proceed along
these lines, I'd also count the implicit POST-like action on the ebXML
MS.  And the CPA, which defines the supported business transactions,
i.e. actions - so there's actually two actions for ebXML messages which
use a CPA, which is odd.

Except for the message itself, I think those are good examples of data
elements.
