8.2.12 @authorize-acronym Authorization Acronym

Names the type of authorization, for example, United States SDOs can name ANS indicating an American National Standard. This attribute provides a machine-searchable normalized version of the authorization since the content of the <authorization> element is free form.

Best Practice: Since the attribute name includes the word acronym, the values (such as ANS) should be given in ALL CAPS.

In element <authorization>, this attribute may be used if the element is used.
