This illustrates my point exactly why we should have a mechanism for
allowing multiple classification schemes within the registry/repository
information model.  This classification may be useful for one sector
(ie. SEC) yet be meaningless for others.  

What will be needed to implement this idea is a mechanism for allowing
authorized actors the ability to append additional classification
schemes to a repository item without destroying, duplicating or
corrupting the original item.

I am sure there is some software engineer already architecting this 
<wink> ;-) </wink>
