    True, but making a distinction between "ID" and the "code" can be
    solved. Calling the other thing "Property Value Alias" would solve the
    problem, but it really ought to be defined somewhere; and since it's not
    mentioned in the standard, then it's status must be informative, and
    that should be indicated.
