    Description

      There are several extensions referenced here that indicate in their name and description that they're expected to be URLs.  However, the data type is 'string'.  FHIR has a URL data type which would enforce that the data source is actually sending a URL (and a syntactically valid URL).  The URL type should be used if the intention is that the data actually be a URL.
