most of the "things" that ebXML deals with are there more or less independently on the fact that Internet is used, imho. It is a matter of fact when "money" is involved in the exchanges.
One of the nice things that I like in ebXML, is its ability to deal with all the "business related aspects" in a consistent framework.
When I buy some bread from my baker, I buy according to an agreed upon sequence of (trans)actions; this sequence, together with the fact that we use some currency, that he may or may not accept a credit-card, that I cannot exit the shop without paying...or that he cannot pretend I did not give him money... are all part of an agreement which is there (even if implicit in the use). When I do business over the internet, I would do the same by means of using electronically-enforceable artifacts.

This should not be expressed in only in terms of benefit, but also "what do you need to carry out business transactions" over the internet. Some people may already have passed the decision point about using the internet for doing business (benefits), however there is a lot of confusion on how.
One could argue that that a good old fax machine and a state of the art OCR, which can read the XML content faxed back and forth, is far from enough. Your CPP is your fax number. All you want is there: robust security, non-repudiation, guaranteed delivery, ... why spend more?
There are several also forms of B2B, it would be good to sort benefits and requirements based on what is it you want to do. Zoe's Pizza does not have the same need as GM, though GM might buy some Pizza's from Zoë.

If so, those two pieces should be used to build a separate white
rather than being hidden among the TC-specific information in the Requirements and Technical Architecture documents. In the process of building that white paper, it may become clear whether the content
suitable for both business people and developers or whether it is
technical for business people and not technical enough for
I think we need two separate approaches: * business benefits for business people * developer benefits for developer people.
Both should be short and sweet and memorable. Written by good communicators. Spec writers don't seem to be good communicators. (Although there are exceptions.)
