Subject: XML-Dev threads on code list issues

Hi folks,

Not many on the committee follow XML-Dev, but you will find in this 
month's threads at:


... a thread titled "Versioning of Enums" (broken once so far, but as 
of today both broken threads are adjacent in the list) where two 
other users of code lists (one in the insurance sector and one in the 
mortgage sector) are commenting on the code list value validation 
methodology I posted in December:


The thread was started by the question from the insurance sector 
about how to handle W3C Schema expressions of enumerations of 
"volatile" code lists.  The poster was looking for guidance on the 
restriction/extension/union approaches of W3C (much like the methods 
I saw used in the UN/CEFACT code list guidelines).

A respondent from MISMO indicated his organization was looking at "a 
variety of methods of inheritance available in W3C XSD, however the 
tools support is so spotty that we have been uncomfortable in using 
it in the standard".

I responded by indicating we were abandoning enumerations in UBL 
schema expressions for code lists, and you'll see in the threads how 
I am presenting how our methodology addresses the questions then 
brought forward by the two gentlemen.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding 
how I'm presenting our proposed methodology.
