CSSMWG and CSTSWG colleagues ---
As part of the review process of the Cross Support Transfer Service Specification Framework (CSTS SFW) prior to final submission to the Secretariat, Margherita di Giulio (CSTSWG chairperson) noticed that the Service Instance Identifier (SII) parameter of the CSTS BIND invocation message contained a "transferServiceProfileId' subfield, for which the content and syntax were not defined. In fact the transferServiceProfileId is an artifact of (Version 1) Service Management, but the question raise by Margherita initiated an examination of whether this was still appropriate for use in the SII. The conclusion is that it is *not* the most appropriate identifier for use in the SII. Wolfgang Hell and I have developed an alternative approach based on Functional Resource concepts and constructs.

Because this represents a case of the intersection of Service Management and CSTS, I'll be giving a presentation (attached) on the topic at tomorrow's (Tuesday's) CSSMWG telecon. Wolfgang and I have convinced ourselves that he proposed approach is the right one, but we welcome any feedback that you might have.

Best regards,
