      It can be argued that this is not completely a disadvantage, as anything beyond administrative gender may have higher confidentiality than patient demographics. Further, SFCU will commonly appear as an extension on Observation, and so will likely have all the pros and cons of other Observation-based approaches.

      Consider refining the statement to reflect these points.

      Existing Wording:

      Clients would require additional authorization scopes to access demographic data. For servers that provide only resource-level scopes, patients may not with to share Observation just to grant access to gender identity, when it would also grant access to labs, vitals, etc.
