good point. I'll have to think about that, although even if we think 
"vs1001" is 'obviously' an 'archetype' code, but there's no guarantee 
some external terminology doesn't have a code like "vsNNN" so for now 
I'd like to keep "local". I'm not religious about it - if we can 
convince ourselves we can throw it out, fine by me.

That's sort of what I was trying to do, but in ODIN (i.e. dADL). I don't 
like raw RDF, but we could do something like Turtle syntax 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-turtle-20120710/>. We can do two things - 
we either embed real Turtle (or whatever) syntax, or we ODIN-ise it, 
which means that it can be deserialised in to in-memory objects that 
follow an RDF triple model. The second option is nicer from the software 
point of view, because it avoids having too many different syntaxes in 
one document, and a generic deserialiser (which we have for ODIN/dADL in 
various languages) will just convert it into objects. But I'm not 
against doing it the other way either if that made more sense.
