Agreed.     (03)

My point is that to model the restriction stated in the definition of Code 
Type, that Code Type should not be used to identify an object in the real 
world, the referent ought to be an &%Attribute or maybe &%Abstract (Which one 
I'm not sure. I'm struggling a bit with my understanding of SUMO).    (04)

Abstract = Properties or qualities as distinguished from any particular 
embodiment of the properties/qualities in a physical medium.    (05)

Best Regards,
