Some of our customers have plain text subjects like "biology" that they also map to an internal taxonomy like Z12345. I can use the ID attribute of subject to hold the value from the taxonomy so long as all the values in the taxonomy start with a  letter. But if the taxonomy is strictly numeric, the value in ID will fail to parse. Adding specific-use as a location where I can put this value will be a big help.

The Standing Committee considered this request and suggest that this need can be met by using compount-subject. No action will be taken.
