Mainly for Charlie and Eric but anyone who knows RIM.

There has been talk off and on for ever about a Domain Specific Language 
for navigating RIM like graphs of data.  Seems to me SPARQL can already do 
that.
But SPARQL is too much to teach clinicians.  So you could have a RIM 
specific DSL that is like a RIMQL.  It could be nothing more than a thin 
layer on top of SPARQL.

The clinician writes a RIMQL query, and it turns into SPARQL.  There's no 
reason you couldn't do that with HL7 FHIR either.
