Sorry, I overstated when I implied you'd *have to* supply a URI (which
would be the case if the type were changed to 'anyURI' -- which I did say);
actually 'cartographic' could be supplied (so ignore my earlier statement
that we would use anyURI and assume instead 'string'), assuming that the
prefix is defaulted, in this case 'info:xv/1/mods/resourceType/1/'. Or, for
special applications the user could change the default, say to
'info:xv/1/mods/resourceType/2/' if all the values were to be from that
list. (The trick is to get editors to support this. But that's not going
to happen until we develop it.)

Absolutely. That's would be the idea behind the default prefix.

Yes it does (unless I misunderstand what you mean by an authority list).
Consider these three URIs:
where 'cartographic' has three different meanings and is correspondingly on
three different lists.
In the first, 'cartographic' comes from a core list (the '1' identifies the
authority), in the second and third '2' and '3' respectively identify the
