My opinion:

- Yes.  Clinicians should have a GUI with interactive faceted browser /
query builder.  ANY query language would be too difficult to teach
clinicians who are not IT specialists.

- I am skeptical that a specialized RIM query language would be a big
enough improvement over SPARQL (or a GUI) to be worth developing, but I
could be proven wrong!
