radical idea - where term value sets should be defined in archetypes.

Thomas and All,

[Sent to CIMI-list as well... Sorry for cross-posting]

>From what I can see the
difference, apart from syntax, from the current AOM is that value sets
are named objects by themselves. This would actually solve the problem
implementing the proposed CIMI terminology binding model in archetypes:
(using openEHR terminology biniding terminology) OBJECT bindings would
be term bindings of value sets, VALUE SET bindings would be assignment
of at-codes to value sets. Then it's just figuring out how those kinds
of bindings are to be used and explained to archetype users...

I see a number of alternative syntaxes for assigning at-codes to value
sets though, e.g.

["vs1001"] = <
   text = <"Blood pressure measuring position">
   description = <"Position of patient at time of measuring blood
   content = <"at1001"> <"at1002"> ...


["at1001"] = <
   text = <"Standing">
   description = <"Standing at the time of blood pressure measurement.">
   valueset = <"vs1001"> <"vs1009">...

This would probably enhance readability, as a archetype reader would
have to look in two places and not three places to determine the
contents of a value set.
