      Description

      Endpoint.payloadType should either be optional, or should have a better value set associated with it. The example value set provided does not seem to even have a way to specify that this endpoint is a FHIR server. 

      And the whole payloadType concept seems weird for a RESTful endpoint. The payload is whatever you query for or whatever a user chooses to POST (think of the Binary endpoint for example). Requiring this to be pre-defined up front might have made sense for XDS, but not for a FHIR endpoint. Personally, I think this should just be optional.
