Are we attributes of organizations? Or are organizations attributes of us? Is the .kin domain not the *only* truly natural hierarchy in which whole living beings are aligned? Isn't peer-to-peer networking the only way that adults can truly relate to each other as equals?
By definition, information systems requiring us to replicate our digital persona -- or, worse yet, creating digital personas for us, often without our knowledge -- are proprietary stovepipes. Why should we allow ourselves to be treated as chattel in self-serving supplier/host-focused applications mascarading under the thinly veiled guise of "customer focus" and the malapropism of "customer loyalty"?
Open standards such as Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), Directory Services Markup Language (DSML), XML Access Control Language (XACML), and Workflow XML (Wf-XML) enable us to reclaim ownership of our own digital personas.
Forms automation and document/record management are common, horizontal requirements that cut across all vertical applications, and they should be addressed as such. I have already mentioned the W3C's XForms standard and AIIM's new initiative to apply XML to document management is worthy of note as well. AIIM's initiative relates closely to the potential enhancement of DoD Std. 5015.2 through the application of XML.
Finally, it should be noted that communities of interest -- which is a more appropriate term than the word "domain" -- will define themselves in terms of subscriptions to data elements, DTDs, and schemas in ISO 11179 compliant registries/repositories.
