punchout and cxml

One of our customers would like to have his Odoo instance available 
through "punchout", possibly using cXML

PunchOut is not a link to a web site. PunchOut is an easy-to-implement 
protocol for interactive sessions managed across the Internet. PunchOut 
is a communication from one application to another, achieved through a 
dialog of real-time, synchronous cXML messages, which support user 
interaction at a remote site. It is the best way to manage user sessions 
distributed across web applications.

This protocol is most commonly used today in the form of Procurement 
PunchOut, which specifically supports interactions between a procurement 
application and a supplier’s eCommerce web site and possibly includes an 
intermediary for authentication and version matching. Procurement 
PunchOut describes the "traditional" PunchOut scenarios that use the 
regular PunchOut Setup Request and PunchOut Setup Response. The PunchOut 
session is initiated with a PunchOutSetupRequest and terminates with a 
posting of a PunchOutOrderMessage, which contains the initiating 
transaction’s cookie and a shopping cart or “quote”.

Anyone already faced a similar requirement?

Thanks for your feedback
