The Diane's link to documentation have other good start point (!),

(spreadsheet

)
*legis:Document* is the concept for "Legislation and regulation" Document
concept of Akoma-Ntoso standard.

Note, about types and subtypes... A good approach is to preserve original
taxonomy as part in the document's identification,
as LEX URNs <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lex_(URN)> (draft RFC
<https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-spinosa-urn-lex/> shows the
hierarchy of jurisdiction / authority / measure-type).
