It is already happening ... check out the Universal Business Language 
committee chaired by Jon Bosak:


The core components of UBL are based on the same core components defined by 
UN/CEFACT upon which EDI is based.  UBL describes a 
document/Internet-oriented approach to business transactions, compared to 
the message/VAN orientation of EDI.

After two years of intense volunteer effort, the committee is now voting on 
an imminent Beta 1.0 Committee Draft release for public review.

Very interesting stuff!
