I have no problem with the proposed Use attributes.  But, I don't like the
content rules associated with many of them.  They call for the fields/access
points to be specific codes.  I believe that such rules should be imposed
through local profiles.  An example is the Nationality Use attribute.  If it
may only have two letter codes, then I'll need an Uncoded-Nationality Use
attribute.  Or, we'll all just ignore the semantics, just like we do today
with Code--Language (Use attribute 54) which is the only Use attribute
available to me to pass language queries.  I'd prefer not to continue that
practice.
