Default UWP Digits from Trade Codes

How close can you get to the original UWP of a world, when only looking at the trade codes?

I haven't done an analysis, but I'd think that you could sometimes get a decent approximation of the UWP in this way.

I did the approximation for this in reverse for the wiki. That is, wrote text descriptions from the trade codes and got pretty good approximations of the UWP every time. Some of the values will come out to be exact, because the overlap is one value. Some of the values will be a small range. And some can be almost any value.

In general, the more codes you have, the more exact the results will be. But even with none or one code, you can derive all of the UWP values to a range of three to six values. Including the TL.
