John, I think this use scenario is good, but I don't understand why the
first sentence is not simply:

	Two parties wish to exchange business documents.

The phrase "wish to conduct electronic business" assumes that we know the
purpose of the communication, when, in fact, we have no idea why two parties
wish to exchange documents. Nor do we care. We might even shorten the first
sentence to:

	Two parties wish to exchange documents.

Comments?
