I didn't see any narrative to guide me in what the changes were, so 
I've been putting off looking at it.

Please change the namespace through the following sequence as you 
produce drafts:


I eventually found only that a code list set can now have an embedded 
set of code lists (and I see the repaired identification).

I gather from what I see that a code list set with embedded lists can 
be a simple wrapper of standalone code lists, but having declared 
column and key identifiers as xsd:ID that would only work if the 
column specifications were mutually-exclusively-id-valued.

So if I want a code list set with a set of common column and key 
definitions, can I successfully process the attached document?  I've 
tried to distill common column specifications (and I didn't check my 
work closely, so forgive obvious errors).

It validates (with the above change to the namespace), but I'm unsure 
if it is the correct usage.

Is the goal for <CodeListSet> with embedded lists *just* to be a 
container of otherwise independent code list specifications, or can 
it be used to streamline or "standardize" the way a set of code lists 
is specified by distilling out common column specifications?

It seems awkward to have to uniquefy all of the column specifications 
when trying to aggregate multiple code lists into a set.

What were the use-cases coming from UN/CEFACT that necessitated these 
chanages?  Knowing the requirements would help assess if your changes 
satisfactorily meet the requirements.

Thanks for your comments on this.
