We are trying to structure a set of clinical trial objects online and I am
wondering what the best strategy to do this is?

1. Is there a way to suggest a new data type?  In this case a type for a
clinical trial?
2. Would it be best not to actually structure the type as a "clinical
trial" per se but to instead use markup for each of the individual elements
in the clinical trial using more basic data types?  For example, we could
mark the physical location of the trial as a place.  There just wouldnt be
anything indicating that our page is about a clinical trial but there still
would be markup indicating what each of the elements on the page is.

Any advice would be appreciated, thanks,
