Well, it sounds nice, for my part it is just the question
if anybody out there takes the time and just does it.

Or, if there is a sponsor willing to donate for anybody
implementing it.

If there is a need for extensions or gateways in a commercial
this is usually a good place to start (a real day example
is a robust foundation), and this could be contributed
back to the xmlBlaster project.

I did not read those specs thoroughly, but for me
such use cases reduce to a simple exchange of messages
with some well defined format (e.g. DTD or SCHEMA),
so that the senders and receivers understand each other
and a workflow is possible.

The MOM should provide all necessary quality of services,
protocols and so forth to do it secure, simple and reliable.

XmlBlaster is a generic implementation which shall
support this.
Even if some components are missing currently,
it is already possible (and done) to use xmlBlaster in
production environments.

The documentation is missing something :-)

keep it as simple as possible (but not simpler than that),
