I think what David is talking about is being able to replace certain  
blocks of the XML with a reference to an external URL or Web service  
(possibly a parameterised reference) that is queried dynamically to get  
that piece of content.

I don't see a "real life" requirement for this for the code list XML  
itself.  That is to say, I don't think we have enough experience (I don't)  
to say that people actually would want to apply this technique (which is  
typically used for human-readable items like Web pages) to the code list  
XML itself.  I also can't say that we need a mechanism on top of what will  
be possible with derived code lists (version 2.0 requirements) and  

After all, we might find that people use the code list XML only to  
populate databases, not as part of complex Web services.

Cheers, Tony.
