Subject: [regrep] Missing identificationScheme in ExternalIdentifier in RIM


We are currently using the name attribute in a ClassificationScheme to
identify the identification scheme (e.g. DUNS). This is a historic
mistake. I had logged this as an issue but forgot to bring it up at the

We are missing an attribute named identificationScheme of type UUID in
the attribute table for ExternalIdentifier (6.9.1?). This should be
added in the master version of RIM for V2.

The atribute is defined as follows:

Attribute  identificationScheme
Each ExternalIdentifier instance must have a  identificationScheme
attribute that references the ClassificationScheme that is used by this
ExternalIdentifier as a namespace for its value. The
identificationScheme is an external ClassificationScheme. Example may
the ClassificationScheme that represents the DUNS namespace.

Furthermore the desription of class ExternalIdentifier in section (6.9?)
should state:

"ExternalIdentifier instances provide the additional identifier
information to RegistryObject such as DUNS number, Social Security
Number, or an alias name of the organization.  The attribute
identificationScheme is used to reference the identification scheme
(DUNS, Social Security Number, etc), and the attribute value contains
the actual information. Each RegistryObject may contain 0 or more
ExternalIdentifier instances."

Please speak up right away if you have any objections. The above change
would impact Sally and RIM.
