When you use SNOMED in termbindings, you don't need to mention 
extensions, the code will do. But we need post coordinated expressions 
for the things which are not coded but still required to express in a 
SNOMED. At this moment, the ADL standard is not ready for that. I 
already made a JIRA entry

When you need SNOMED in a terminology constraint, and you want to 
constrain to a subset, then it should be sufficient to use the code to 
that subset. The terminology service should be able to find out if it is 
a code to an entry, an hierarchy or a subset, and response appropriate.

I am not sure about national extensions
