Subject: Re: [ubl] A discussion topic for Manhattan - modelling UBLExtensions

We can discuss this in Manhattan, but you'll remember that we
determined the extension point to be semantically empty.  If that's
the case, I don't think we want it in the spreadsheets.

   Hi folks!

   I just remembered one topic I would like to bring up for discussion 
   in Manhattan regarding UBL 2.0 Update is that the documentation of 
   the <UBLExtensions> element was treated in UBL 2.0 solely as a 
   document-model-expression modification/adaptation.

   In the process of re-issuing the spreadsheets in UBL 2.0 Update with 
   repairs for the descriptions and other spreadsheet columns, I would 
   like us to consider repairing the spreadsheets with the addition of a 
   row representing the <UBLExtensions> element in each of the maindoc/ 
   document spreadsheets, thus treating this element as a first-class 
   construct in the model.

   This begs, then, how we should document the descendants of 
   <UBLExtensions> also as first-class objects.  For example I'm not 
   convinced they should be included as part of the Common 
   Library.  Rather they could be treated as a customized spreadsheet 
   along the lines of the separate spreadsheet for qDT that has a 
   different selection of columns that than for the elements.

   This is not a normative change, as the schemas are not impacted by 
   this one iota.  My higher-priority intent is to reflect the normative 
   <UBLExtensions> element found in the schemas in the 31 document model 
   spreadsheets where it is used.  Of lesser priority to me, documenting 
   all descendent elements in a similar fashion would help implementers.

   I acknowledge it may be far too late for considering this as part of 
   UBL 2.0 Update, but I didn't want the subject to be lost again to my memory.
