Indeed the values are not interoperable (they never have been in Mt Confidence).

But do the MT Confidence users wants to be able to access the values even if they don't understand them?
These values are mostly labels anyway. They could be at least displayed by all tools in a more consumable manner than a URL.

I'm asking because not defining the parameter' names would be losing some level of interoperability compared to the current proposal in the draft.

Cheers,
