Data Types Issue 74: UNC NullFlavor

Introduction

Some users/developers/implementors are unable or too lazy to encode a CD properly. Other users would like to know so that they can be caught out later. So it would be nice to add a nullFlavor code to suggest that a receiver might well invest in recoding the concept.


Discussion

Disposition: For the moment, add a NullFlavor UNC. When CD & nullFlavor are re-organised to resolve the NullFlavor issues associated with OTH, this nullFlavor will probably be refactored in favor of a different approach to meet the same requirement.

Approved (Motion Grahame/Stan)

The above is the R1 resolution, for R2 we need to revisit this and come up with a better solution, hopefully one that doesn't introduce new null flavors specific to certain data types.

R2 - re-orged the nullFlavors.
