This thread in the ebXML Registry TC may be of interest to the egov TC:
 http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/regrep/200309/msg00119.html  http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/regrep/200309/msg00126.html  http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/regrep/200309/msg00125.html
 from Paul Spencer poses an eGov scenario from UK govt. and questions whether ebXML Registry could be used for dynamic XML Schema assembly.
 (inlcuded below) from Diego includes a link to a paper describing how the Finnish govt. has addressed the use case.
 from Peter describes how Adobe is addressing eForms use case
It should be noted that both  and  used the version 2.1 of ebXML Registry specs. Version 3 is in teh final stages of being completed and has many new features.
It would be good if the members of the egov TC can provide active input into egov requirements as the ebXML Registry TC begins work on version 4. Thanks.

Republica is also working with eGov Forms and we have produced a form assembler pilot for the Government of Finland. Basically, we extracted the form parts and modeled them as BIEs, according to CCTS; we used ebxmlrr as our Reg Rep and similar approach to what is being discussed in the cc-review subcommittee; for assembling/ generating the form, we used a web tool and XSLT + extensions.
You might want to check the case study, currently available at http://www.republica.fi/lomake/ebXML_CaseStudy_eGovForms.doc. There is also an online demo of the Assembly tool, available at http://www.republica.fi/lomake/ (Pages in English, BIE content in Finnish).

Sorry I have not been as active here as I would like. For those who don't know, I advise various parts of the UK Government on XML. Unfortunately, nobody here is currently prepared to spend money on registries, but I am working on this. My reason for joining this group was to represent UK Government requirements in my spare time - something I have signally failed to do so far.
I recently did some work for the MOD here, spending two days turning their core schema (a collection of complex data types) into a repository of fully-versioned types from which schemas can be automatically generated. This is linked to their existing data dictionary through IDs and ASP code.
Whilst not a long-term solution, this has clarified the benefits of a registry to parts of the MOD and elsewhere in Government and flushed out some additional requirements. I now have permission to present on this project and to talk to the regrep TC about it. I am currently preparing a presentation that must be complete by October 14th. As part of a telecon, I would be happy to make this available and talk through it.
What I would like to get out of this is:
* does the existing reg/rep spec meet this requirement?
* if not, is the TC interested in this requirement for a future release?
* Do any of the current implementations meet this requirement?
Note that the MOD is a simple case of the general UK Govt requirement. I imagine that the needs are common across most Governments - it will just be that some don't realise it yet.
