Doug Fridsma of the ONC was at the HL7 meetings last week.  I suspect 
that if HL7 works on this, then the ONC will follow.  And if efforts by 
HL7 and W3C to move this forward in the healthcare community are 
successful, that would enable ONC to show support.  From what I have 
seen, the ONC tends to be politically cautious about the steps it takes.
