Subject: Re: [ubl] [GC] Additional metadata


Likewise I would like to see some kind of metadata in the UOM
(units of measure) codelist that will help make it more relevant
to business (as distinct from the apparent scientific purpose
of most codes eg light year). I'm not sure what sort of metadata
would help but codes like 'each' tend to be the only useful ones
in many cases of trade and transport and a definition to help
their use might justify inclusion of this codelist which seems
to be a legacy from EDI. To be frank though, the codelist would
better be replaced altogether in my honest opinion and lowers
the value of the ATG datatypes.  It rather hinders the use of
the essentially core BIEs based on the Quantity datatypes (like
BasePrice which is essential to pricings which are likewise
essential to core business documents like Order and Invoice).

Perhaps some kind of best practice guide is the preferred way
to help implementers above and beyond metadata (since I've
recollection this codelist is unavoidable in view of the
importance of alignment with ATG datatypes and other standards
which maybe use them).
