True, but I think that was a much cleaner definition of a topic scope 
suitable for a new TC.  I'm very reluctant to trigger the overhead of 
a new technical committee whose scope would probably only be the one 
extension of this schema and nothing else.

Kewl idea!  But in the conformance section while such non-code-list 
constraints would be entirely optional, if they were present they 
would need to conform to the committee definition and schema components.

I think your suggestion can justify keeping it in the one CVA specification.

Thanks for your thoughts on this, Mary!
