Subject: Re: [ubl-lcsc] UBL Schema 1.0-alpha draft-1 20030918 (With Draft CodeList Schemas)

Good stuff, Ken!  The specific examples, and comments on
the differences between what's there and what's expected
are very useful.  Thanks for going through.  I'll run
through your examples and match the filenames with the
right content, as well as generating mirror copies for
*-Use-* for OOTB.  Think many feedbacks from Stephen &
Lisa are on this -Use- issue.

There was some discussion during LC call on codelists'
"standardness", as to whether it means UBL-standard, or
international standards as set by, say ISO or UNECE.

And also the treatment of external codelists (codelists
authoritatively managed by external agencies, like the
CountryIdentifierCode & CurrencyCode).  

I've separately done some codelist transformation work
on the UNECE codelists into spreadsheet format, and could
extend that further to UBL-codelist-conformant format
now as the CodeListCatalogue is stabilising and has a
namespace value and assigned prefix to them.

However, I did face a "matching" issue.  I could find
5 codelists:
- Country Code 		--> cnt
- Currency Code		--> cur
- Mode Of Transport	--> stm
- Unit Of Measurement	--> UNASSIGNED IN UBL

The unassigned lists apparently has no equivalent prefixes
of similar nature defined in CodeListCatalogue.  

Please check to see if I've matched the first 3 correctly.
