The UMM/UPCC3 method uses inheritance to assemble enumerations.
One enumeration could inherit from different other enumerations with the intention of combining the values of all the parent enumerations.
The problem is that currently the Schema Composer doesn't allow the selection of those "inherited" enumeration literals. As a workaround we have to copy all the values down to the assembled enumerations, but that is error prone and not according to the UN/CEFACT recommendations.
Please allow inherited enumeration literals to be selected in the schema composer exactly like we can do with inherited attributes.

Thanks

Geert
