Title: RE: [xml-dev] ISO 11179
I believe that this criterion (sometimes called the "thunk factor") is a completely erroneous way of evaluating specifications that fails to take into account other factors.

I work on a project which uses the UBL Naming & Design Rules. Those are
based on the ebXML CCTS, which in turn is based on ISO 11179 (which as such
does not contain anything about XML). So I need to read and understand:

ISO 11179 Part 1 - 32 pages
ISO 11179 Part 2 - 16 pages
ISO 11179 Part 3 - 108 pages
ISO 11179 Part 4 - 16 pages
ISO 11179 Part 5 - 20 pages
ISO 11179 Part 6 - 72 pages
ebXML Core Components Technical Specification - 113 pages
UBL Naming & Design Rules - 104 pages

So I have one critique: bloat.


(Now, I could count the pages for this other project where I have to
understand XML + XSD + SOAP + WSDL + WS-Security + WS-Reliability + ... ,
come to think of it, the naming stuff above might not be that bad at all :-)
