Exactly right. Archetypes are high-value clinical informatics work, and 
they are free. Making more of them, faster, means getting more clinician 
and informatician time, which means that projects who would like to have 
domain models of information and process - even if their final 
consumption format is not openEHR - should consider providing some time 
(machine conversions are pretty easy, and there is a lot of open source 
software about to do them). It's the only way good things get made 
faster and remain free for everyone to use.
