Sounds good.

I meant it mostly in the Carl Jung sense [1] of the word ("innate,
universal prototypes for ideas that may be used to interpret
observations") applied to the domain of clinical practice.  Although
I'll leave the question of whether these prototypes are meant to denote
conceptualizations or 'universals' as fodder for a different thread :)

It would seem to me to be a useful exercise to identify (and perhaps
model) those middle-ontology-level patterns of representation that
*should* be pervasive across SDTM, HL7 RIM, Detailed Clinical Models,
SNOMED CT, GALEN, openEHR, etc. and *should* subsume most of the terms
in the more specific sub-domains.
