Organisational unit within contact details

(Originally from support ticket)

In an earlier discussion about more granularity within contact details, adding a <department> was mentioned but not implemented. I find many NGOs want to publish a "department" name and address rather than an individual staff member.

http://support.iatistandard.org/entries/21180307-Add-more-granularity-to-activity-contact-details

So a request to reconsider an <organisational-unit> or similar, to be added to contact info.

    The 1.05 upgrade is flagged as 'codelist only' so this could not be considered there. It could happen in version 2.x - but might be too late in the process for 2.01. However, I shall move this into the 2.01 upgrade process forum for consideration at the end of the Iteration 2 consultation period.

    As the impact of its inclusion is trivial I propose that we include it in 2.01 as a late entry.

    This element has not been fully specified in this table:

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1iHqYHqtuY-sfafEMRGw3nODjVY4BjutYsm0iFRYNJck/edit#

    While the element itself is to be called 'department', I will implement this in the schema with a description:

    "The department within the organisation to contact for more

    information about the activity."
