completeness of tagging of archetpyes with snomed terminology IDs

When looking at the published archetypes in the international CKM I see 
a lot of archetype members that do not have a terminology binding, but 
which could possibly have one. The "Body Surface Area" for example has a 
member "Body Surface Area" which has no bound code but could have the 
Snomed Code 128178001. Or "Blood Pressure" has terminology bindings for 
its members "Systolic" and "Diastolic", but not for the "Mean arterial 
pressure". Is there a reason for those non existing bindings or is it 
just because the bindings have not yet been needed and so nobody added 
them yet ?
