The only problems I found doing the above checks is that an item from
the _item_description category is missing from all the save frames that
describe categories rather than data blocks.  My interpretation of the
meaning of _category.mandatory_code of 'yes' for _item_description is
that something from this category should always be present in a
definition frame.  This may be a misunderstanding on my part.

These checks don't include checking category_group and sub_group items
for consistency.
