I've added links for OpenWFE's Workflow Patterns (as well as 
the XML schema it uses to represent workflow patterns) to the 
ACPPTaskForce Wiki.  Part of the task objectives on the ACPP wiki includes 
collecting core vocabularies for expressing workflow modeling 
constructs.  There are many well established patterns in this field that 
could be captured in an RDF/OWL vocabulary for use with pathway and 
protocol decision making.

One of the immediate advantages (in this case) 
of using a XML dialect (that could be mapped to such a 
vocabulary directly), is in using pre-existing workflow management tools (such 
as OpenWFE's web-based editor) to construct a workflow document.  The 
existing ER Stroke Management usecase could be modelled this way.

OpenWFE is an open source workflow engine.
