The Core Components Technical Specification v1.8 was
released yesterday.  They are requesting CSG to move to
stage 5 of the UN/CEFACT ODP development process, which
is the public comment stage.

The new spec. and announcement are at this link.

There are some great improvements and clarifications.  It is
not a wholesale revision but there are interesting parts.

Identifier.Type has been extended to include Uniform Resource
Identifiers (URIs).  This is a CCT (Core Component Type) that is,
a business datatype, that would be intrinsic in any runtime
that supports core components.  SMEs no longer have to
register any "Agency" in the UN/CEFACT namespace to
publish their Party or Product list.  Also the Identifier. Type
can point at internal value domains such as filesystem, SQL
database or web service on the intranet, bringing us closer
to the day when the internal data dictionary is the same as
the global data dictionary.  So, this makes the Identifier.Type
usable in GL designs because you can use it for Account.
RFC 2396 (URIs) is at

We are getting closer to the day when there is no GL design
other than the BPSS, itself, plus some small number of
accountant's adjustments that will probably be done in some
financial reporting software,
