      Agreed, correct definitionTerm extension as suggested. In addition, we will add clarifying documentation to the extension to make clear that it 1) Intentionally does not use CodeableConcept or Coding because we don't want to introduce the additional burden of identifying or maintaining associated code systems, that's not the intent, and 2) The the extension is only separating term and definition to support more flexible narrative rendering as HTML.

    Description

      Because of the way extensions are serialized in JSON, there is no way to guarantee that the "definitionTerm" extension is always associated with the correct "definition" element on which it should appear. This extension should instead be a complex extension with both the term and the definition.
