I thought the point of an OASIS repository was something like this:

"We think e-commerce applications will be simpler to build if we develop a
repository of shared schemas. Why don't you join us and put together a
working group that will define schemas and transaction sets for your

Perhaps your viewpoint is the reason industry-specific initiatives have been
forming. Others must also have concerns that a repository means someone will
tell them how to do business. Of course, there are other possibilities.
Someone from one of the large software companies told me his customers were
reluctant to participate because too much proprietary information would be
exposed. (That was before ebXML and BizTalk had any schemas.)

My guess is some organizations have taken a wait-and-see attitude. If they
like what comes out of the repository efforts and believe it serves their
own interests, they'll participate.
