    Description

      Currently dataAbsentReason is must support. In investigating this further, it looks like it is impossible to actually support this technically because it isn't possible to write to the data model to support.

      We would recommend that the field become optional with implementation guidance that if the value is blank then the dataAbsentReason should be used.
