Represents various ways to identfy the same company for eg
If a company is identfy by Tax Number in a country and as My Company will have different Tax Number for different Countries so it will have different identification code. IdentifieBag will look something like this

<keyedReference tModelKey="India Tax Number" keyName="taxnumber" keyValue="222" />
<keyedReference tModelKey="UK Tax Number" keyName="taxnumber" keyValue="333" />


Represent to what category my company belongs to ,If my happen that my company falls into many category , say I have hotel it can fall under category of Hotel or Resturant. So it will be represented like this

<keyedReference tModelKey="BusinessTypeClassification" keyName="resturant" keyValue="222" />
<keyedReference tModelKey="CityClassification" keyName="hotel" keyValue="333" />

<B>So the main difference between IdentifierBag and CategoryBag is that the namesapce identified by tModel in a categoryBag points to predefined category (BusinessTypeClassification/CityClassification)while in IdentifierBag this is not predefined

In real life categories are NAICS/ISO 3166 /UNSPSC
