Subject: valueListURN

The valueListURN structure is used to capture the values from managed 

It is defined as "where the content of valueListUrn is the Uniform 
Resource Name of a published list of values and definitions, and the 
content of value is a string (which may represent a number) denoting 
the value itself"

For example:
   <valueListUrn> http://www.dhs.gov/NiemRoleType </valueListURN>
   <value> ICS Operations Branch </value>

valueListUrn is *not* a URN [1] - a true URN does not need to be split 
as such and the examples
in the draft document use URLs (which are not URNs).

A URN would look something like "urn:oasis:terms:roles:ics-operations"
(A list of URN namespaces currently defined are here [2])

Q1: Do we want to use real URN syntax? (in which case, we just use a 
single element)

Q2: Do we want to use a hybrid system where we identify the authority 
that manages the
vocabulary list (with a URI) and then indicate the value?
For example:
     <authority> http://www.dhs.gov/NiemRoleType </authority>
     <value> ICS Operations Branch </value>
