911 is actually fairly optimal in this regard. It's just a shame that
the rest of the NANP is a horrible mess.
It's also surprisingly poorly-documented, possibly on the basis that
"everybody knows" how it works. For example, I haven't found any
documentation that actually explains CLASS codes.
Sure, it's easy to find tables mapping codes to product names, but
that's about as useful as telling a leftpondian that, say, 227
controls "Anonymous Call Rejection" on a BT line and expecting them to
know what it does, and how to dial it.
The traditional flaming Christmas pudding for example dates back to the 17th
century, when a form of stiff porridge was made containing plums, preserved
quinces, lemon peel, ox blood and grated pig livers. All bound together with
goose fat. No wonder they set fire to it. - Humphrey Lyttelton, ISIHAC
