Sorry, that was not my point. If one party uses arbitrary partyId "type"
(for their own partyId), the receiving party may not have the framework to
verify the Id to be a valid one per the "type" (say DUNS).

Currently it seems theoretically at least one can accomplish this by having
multiple PartyInfo elements (or separate CPPs  :^&) with different PartyId
specs. It would be good to have a way to offer options and pick the ones
that suit both parties, in one instance of the CPP.
