I agree that the ISCED proposal answers more questions than my age group
proposal. It does seem though that the tag needs to indicate what ISCED
version the value belongs to, since the standard can be revised at any
time. If a future version is made, we'd have to know if the value on the
existing tags are according to the old or new classification.
