Under the Sector Vocabulary Codelist, you may specify a user-defined vocabulary by specifying a code of
99. You may specify a specify a second user-defined vocabulary by specifying a code of
98. There is no way to specify a third (or more) user-defined vocabularies.
If multiple user-defined vocabularies may actually be specified through unique
98values should probably be withdrawn.
- It should be documented that multiple user-defined vocabularies may be identified using unique
vocabulary-urivalues for version 2.02+ publishers.
Alternatively, It is unclear whether a
//sector/narrative could be used as a UID. If it describes the
@code, it cannot. If it describes or defines the vocabulary, it can. If it can describe either or both (as appears to be), it cannot.
As a related issue, the name
Reporting Organisation for code
99 does not clearly identify its meaning, and is not correct in all instances - a code
99 vocabulary may be maintained by an organisation other than the Reporting Org.
- There should be a standardised and scalable method for defining and uniquely identifying multiple user-defined vocabularies.
99should be changed to more accurately state what it is, and descriptions added / updated to reflect this.
