Which type to use for an instance such as:
http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00587600?spons=%22Mayo+Clinic%22&spons_ex=Y&rank=7


Mayo Clinic has 938 trials listed there currently, which I think could also
be typed as a MedicalStudy<http://schemaorg-medicalext.appspot.com/MedicalStudy>
.

A bit confusing if each of those 938 listed would be either a
MedicalStudy<http://schemaorg-medicalext.appspot.com/MedicalStudy> or
a MedicalTrial <http://schemaorg-medicalext.appspot.com/MedicalTrial>.

Does the mere fact that a Thing HAS A clinicaltrials.gov Identifer make it
one over the other ?  It seems given your MedicalStudy description that
those instances would be a MedicalStudy.  Example from above : NCT00587600

Perhaps just more documentation is needed for Medical Trial
<http://schemaorg-medicalext.appspot.com/MedicalTrial>itself to
make the differences more apparent ?
