The reason I was thinking that something like "code:" might be more
acceptable than "_" is that it is more visible and (at least for English
readers) may be more distinguishable from the original code, though a
machine of course would not care.  Also, I was not sure whether the
proposed "_" prefix was only going to apply to numeric codes, and I
thought a prefix might be more palatable if it were uniformly mandated
for all, so that different taxonomies would not require different
