Yes, the code list value is an 'index into a code set', and yes, the burden for understanding the semantics of a code lies with the code set, and not with an individual code.  X12, UN/CEFACT, and UBL all recognize the need to clearly identify the code set and code set owner.   Unfortunately, these existing code sets do not lead to an ontology that explains the semantics behind the codes. 

I agree with you that they should.  I was just stressing the distinction between
the individual code referring to the ontology versus the codeset.
