Subject: Comment from UN/CEFACT ICG on code list sets

Last week, I attended the UN/CEFACT Forum in Stockholm.  At that forum, I  
met with two UN/CEFACT permanent groups to discuss their possible use of  
genericode.  The groups were ATG2 (responsible for XML standards) and ICG  
(responsible for repositories and publishing).

ATG2 is looking at genericode as a way to allow them to avoid embedding  
externally-controlled enumerations in their Schemas.  ICG has decided to  
trying encoding all of its code lists in genericode, with the aim of  
having this done for the next quarterly forum, so that it can make a  
decision on whether to publish in genericode.

One thing ICG asked for is a modification to genericode "code list sets",  
so that a single code list set document can recursively contain multiple  
code list sets.  ICG's requirement is to be able to publish details of  
multiple sets of code lists within a single document.

I am proposing to make this change for the 2nd public review of  
genericode, since it is backwards compatible.  I am posting this to the  
CLRTC comments list so that anyone who wishes can comment on this  
proposal.  Please post all replies to the comments list  

Cheers, Tony.
