      Persuasive. Drop the backbone element .context and move all elements within to root of the Resource. This will likely mean some re-sorting due to workflow ordering recommendation, this re-ordering should be done as there is little reason to maintain current order, and the removal of the .context backbone element is already going to be a breaking change

    Description

      Consider promoting the elements under DocumentReference to Resource-level elements. The context backbone element adds no value; it is 0..1 and the only reason for it to be present is if the sub-elements are present. There is no particular grouping among the sub-elements, and they are no more "context" than the top-level elements type, category, relatesTo, or author are context.
