But I see that lots of things are identifiers: currency identifier, 
binary object uri, code list agency identifier, etc. They are not all 
components of the Identifier CCT.  Each of the 10 CCTs listed in table 
8-1 have components of many types (I see text, code, and identifier type 
components for each CCT).  Yet the last entry in table 8-1 clearly shows 
language.identifier and language.locale.identifier as belonging to the 
CCT with a D.E.N. of Text.Type.

Couldn't agree more with your following statement.  Especially table 8-2 
which flattens 8-1 in a very obfuscating manner.
