Subject: Re: [ubl-comment] Code list rules document

Hello Terry,

I think Bill Burcham's response is correct: (1) UBL is absolutely 
committed to avoiding maintenance of code lists owned by others, and (2) 
though it need not appear in the instance, agency-identifying 
information is provided by means of the code list schema module.  So I 
believe that the proposed rules do meet your criteria.  Let us know if 
you have any other comments or questions,
