Thank you for your clarifying explanation.  During the intervening year
since ebXML began to investigate candidate technologies there have been
several important changes that ebXML might want to consider.  In particular,
the SOAP specification that is used by most implementors is not the 0.9
version that ebXML looked at but the 1.1 version submitted to the W3C on May
8, 2000 and available at http://www.w3.org/TR/SOAP/. 

This, not the 0.9 version, is the one submitted to the W3C by Ariba, Inc.,
Commerce One, Inc., Compaq Computer Corporation, DevelopMentor, Inc.,
Hewlett Packard Company, International Business Machines Corporation, IONA
Technologies, Lotus Development Corporation, Microsoft Corporation
SAP AG, and UserLand Software Inc. 

This 1.1 specification is not a large technical change from 0.9 or 1.0, but
does substantially improve the clarity of the explanations in the document.
In particular, it makes it clear that the SOAP specification addresses not
just RMC but also general business document exchange.
