Thanks for bringing this up, Mike.    (01)

1. May I suggest that we make reference to the "UBL Definition" as a 
starting point. I am sure, in some cases, changes will be justified.    (02)

2. On the UBL Definition (column 17 on the spreadsheets), it is 
remarked that:    (03)

   "UBL Definition:    (04)

   If this is blank, then use the xCBL definition from the
   Structure Reference.    (05)

   Refer to Core Component Definition if a Component Definition
   if available."    (06)

3. Kindly refer to the pertinent references which I have posted on the 
wiki at:
   http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl/wiki.pl?UblRelease0p70#nid010    (07)

4. Of course, in a case like "Invoice",    (08)

4.(a) where the UBL Definitions simply states "complete information of 
the invoice," and    (09)

4.(b) xCBL 3.0 describes it as " The Invoice comprises the creation of 
an invoice that is sent from a seller to a buyer for payment for the 
goods or services detailed in the invoice supplied under conditions 
agreed between buyer and seller. An invoice may refer to goods, items 
or services related to one or more orders. An invoice may contain 
references to payment terms and transport information."    (010)

4.(c) Something along the line of what Mike had suggested, or a re-use 
of another pertinent standard definition (suggestions?), should be 
considered.    (011)

5. By the way, we are still working on the UblRelease0p70 material ... 
Can someone point us to 0p80 material (since we are barely resuming 
activities here)?    (012)
