re: *ML to transmit an entire catalog and ECML, two questions

I'm looking for a *ML schema suitable for transmitting an entire
catalog.  There must be such (or more than one) thing.  Can anyone
suggest what to look at?

Along the path I looked at ECML, a wallet API.  If we converted
our checkout forms as they suggest, does this mean that any ECML
wallet would just work with our catalogs?  I note that Yahoo 
wallet is not on the list at www.ecml.org.

This would be a painful transition, mapping and reorganizing all those
fields, but my experience is that any solid standard is almost always
better than the results of many years of ad hoc evolution.  :-)
