Add SNOMED codes to values in Internal code set

There are various things to consider

 1. bind the SNOMED codes you want in the archetype term_binding section
 2. consider how you design your templates, in the sense of what codes -
    the internal, or the SNOMED get stored at runtime.
 3. consider how the CDR implementation Operational Templates (OPTs) -
    i.e. does it do any kind of terminological substitutions?

Background information:

  * Terminology Integration section of the ADL2 specification.
  * OPT2 spec
    which explains some of the logical options that can be implemented
    with OPTs.
