Good point, Steve, and one I'd lost track of in thinking about the markup.

Alex, you originally asked for a Catalogue document, but I had to 
concoct bogus information to complete the requirements such as 
provider and receiver.

Perhaps you need something like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Inventory xmlns:cbc=
         <cbc:ID schemeURI="urn:x-SKU">ABC987</cbc:ID>

Then, having used the same business objects, it would be easy to 
create a catalogue when a catalogue is needed.

But I think there are to be documents, Steve:

Alex, what were you going to do with these documents exported from 
Ubercart?  What other tools would be using this information being 
exported?  Are other tools creating XML to be imported into Ubercart?

So I think the discussion is apropos, perhaps just, as you say Steve, 
not with a catalogue but with a custom document.
