Could you please cite document, chapter and verse where this is found?

I haven't yet seen a demonstration of how these code lists can be used 
"without any modifications and restrictions".  Early in September I created 
straw-man validation scenarios where these issues were being addressed:

No suggestions were put forward at that time regarding changes to the 
straw-man implementations, and as a result the remainder of the work the 
past two months has been based on the work in early September.

Would you please demonstrate the successful "use of arbitrary code lists 
without any modifications and restrictions" in a working validation 
scenario using off-the-shelf W3C Schema tools using existing UBL schemas 
and arbitrary external code lists?  This was the objective of the straw-man 
and the basis of the work upon which the last eight weeks has been based.

Thanks for your help in this!
