Subject: RE: [ubl-ndrsc] Bill&Eve's proposal on local/global elements

Title: RE: [ubl-ndrsc] Bill&Eve's proposal on local/global elements
If you look at the CCTs, you will see things like "Identifier".
Take xCBL NameAddress as an example. We have two child elements that are "identifiers". One is a simple string type, called "external address identifier." The other is a more typical identifier that is used to supply a coded, official identifer for the addresee - a DUNS number, for example, using fields to specify code lists, etc.
This may not even be the best example, but what it points out is this: we have a choice between making everything be represented by a single XSD structure, designed to agree ith our list of CCTs, in which case we get bloated structures with lots of unneccessary optional elements, and a consequent lack of ability to automatically validate, or we have more than one structure for certain of the CCTs.
This is what I was trying to say with the phrase "variety of structures." Still nothing that couldn't be handled with a mapping table, however.

Agree in principle.  What do you mean by a "variety of structures"?
