I would suggest that CIMI has been simiplified to the point of not being 
directly usable as an RM by openEHR or 13606 - most of the needed 
context information is gone in CIMI, and it doesn't distinguish any kind 
of 'Entry' or clinical statement.

This was a conscious choice in the CIMI community, designed to get 
buy-in from a much wider range of stakeholders than openEHR or 13606 
deals with. Technically, the CIMI approach is to soft-model nearly 
everything in 'reference archetypes'.
