That's because it rarely actually matters.

And it is rarely actually specifiable.

There's a four-stage grouping of "diagnostic certainty" in
German GP research lore:

	'A': _('A: Sign'),
	'B': _('B: Cluster of signs'),
	'C': _('C: Syndromic diagnosis'),
	'D': _('D: Scientific diagnosis')

Most encounters or even episodes of care don't
reach C, let alone D.
