Sure, it probably started off as a draft table to record
code list metadata values.  But as I go through the linkages,
it's beginning to be clear to me that these medata values
are quite integral to how UBL synthesizes codelist schemas
and linking them back into the Reusable and Document model
spreadsheets, since it would be exactly through this Code 
List Catalogue that we will be able to do it.

After some more work and consideration, the formula has been 
amended to look like the following:

	"UBL-CodeList-" + prefix + "-" + UBLVersion 
	[+ "-draft-" + draftNumber] + ".xsd"

where the square brackets denote work-in-progress draft versions that
would be absent in final release.

So for instance, the  Shipment Priority Level Code with a prefix
defined as "spl" will have a mechanically derived filename of


and its <xsd:import> will look like the following:

schemaLocation="UBL-CodeList-spl-1.0-alpha-draft-1.xsd" />
