No one who's actually tried to use Snomed CT could think that in it's
current form it's the answer to everything.
But anyone who's tried to work on real terminologies must also be aware of
just how much work is involved in these things.
So there's very much a glass half full/empty thing here. I understand not
being thrilled with Snomed CT as a choice, but as the french government,
for instance, actually confronted how much more it will cost to do
There's more than one kind of club to have that wastes money....
I've had a quick look at Meriterm... like all good rdf, it's not easily
penetrable. But it looks like the authors are not informed about Cimino's
desiderata... which brings us back to the wasting money thing...
