Yet another OBSERVATION vs. EVALUATION issue

In the EN13606 Association in our SIAMS document we developed a generic semantic patterns that drives all artefacts,
One of the sub-patterns is to document a semi-quantitative result.
This semi-quantitative result is to document all 'severity' type of things.
Always these semi-quantitative things (Severities) are defined in a specific context.
So each semi-quantitative semantic sub-pattern allows one to include inclusion and exclusion criteria for each entry in the semantic ordinal sub-pattern.

And yes, these sub-patterns always are Cluster Models.
