The ranges will be different across labs and across types of
measurement due to "precision available", "reagants used",
"technology applied", and a variety of other ugly real-world
factors. Even for the very same LOINC from the very same lab.

I don't think this knowledge should (or can) live in the
archetype but rather be stored with the data and/or the
interpretation of the data.
