The WfMC has long held the view that interoprability of business process
is a far more flexible vehicle to support electronic commerce than simple EDI.
We had been looking to extend such interoperability beyond the current MIME
standard and the proposals on XML and SWAP are a great opportunity to push this
forward. The health care market is an interesting case and the NIST PSL project
has also been looking to extend this type of operation into manaufacturing
industry (design and supply chain management).
Although I couldn't get to the meeting in Costa Mesa I am sure the WfMC will
lend this activity its full support.
