Subject: Re: Codelist usability issues - ease and performance design

Dear David,

	Thank you for your public comment regarding the OASIS Code List  
Representation TC work:


We discussed it by e-mail and at our last teleconference.  I am replying  
on behalf of the TC.

It is always easiest to reply to specific comments about a specific  
version of specification (or draft thereof).  Your comments are more  
general in character.  For the most part, your comments appear to be  
targetted at people who are implementing run-time code list validation  
mechanisms.  Run-time validation mechanisms are outside of the scope of  
the current work of the TC.  The current work is focussed on modelling and  
encoding code lists for transmission between users and systems.  How  
implementers of run-time validation systems choose to use that code list  
information, and represent it for run-time usage, is not in scope.  We  
expect there will be many ways that people will use this information (e.g.  
in repositories and database tables, encoded into XML Schemas and Java  
enumeration classes, etc.).

We discussed your comments about constructing XML documents so that they  
are composed of logical parts that can be externally referenced.  We note  
that these comments apply to XML generally, not to code lists in  
particular.  As such, this TC isn't planning to define a generic mechanism  
of that sort (nor software to support that mechanism).  We are potential  
users of such mechanisms defined elsewhere (including XInclude, for  

Note that we have just published our requirements document for informal  
public review


and that this document references materials that have been contributed to  
the TC as an input (see
