Hi David,
I made a suggestion in a previous mail about dumping these two requirements
as they stand as they are covered by DR700, which is quite a serious
catch-all
for extensibility. In fact, when I drafted the requirement first, things
like
ebXML and BizTalk were on my mind. So I think it is covered in the general
case, and it will be the job of the WG, once it can get its teeth into the
solutions rather than requirements (the fun part) to make a distinction
between
different 'sorts' of application-specific content and how to deal with it.

 cheers
