Subject: Re: [ubl-ndrsc] Important eBTWG Code/CCT discussion

After reading (quickly, I admit) through this thread, I'm not sure 
there's a lot of merit in the idea of unifying codes and identifiers at 
some level.  I would want to ask the question: What hard benefit might 
come out of seeing one of them "derived from" the other or both of them 
"derived from" a common ancestor somehow?  For example, would there be 
any processing code in common that could make use of this family 

I suspect the answer is that there's no benefit; what's more useful is 
the particular pattern of supplementary components they each have, which 
distinguishes rather than unifying them.  Also, to me they simply seem 
like different enough beasts (identifier semantics include uniqueness, 
while code semantics convey classification according to a published 
scheme) to justify keeping them separate.  And this isn't even to 
address the difficulties we've been having with understanding 
identifiers on their own...

However, I may not have enough context to understand the argument being 
made.  Can you expound?
