      1. Change the component name to "Sex"
      2. Expand the list of valid tables to include both HL70001 and HL70828 but indicate that HL70001 is retained only for backwards compatibility and that table HL70828 is the appropriate table to use when conveying the concept of Sex Parameter for Clinical Use
      3. Update the descriptive text that the component is intended to reflect the clinically relevant value for the reference range. This may be the Sex Parameter for Clinical Use concept or some other representation of a clinically relevant sex.
      4. Also update the description of the component to describe the possible concepts to be messaged and the importance of including the table ID in the CWE data type so that receiving systems can clearly understand which concept is being conveyed
      5. Update the examples where needed
      6. Make changes in all places where the datatype RFR is used

      I think we missed updating this section to account for Gender Harmony. The component name is "Administrative Sex" but the definition contains the word "gender". Neither of those concepts are appropriate for setting observation reference ranges. I propose changing the component name to "Sex for Clinical Use" and updating the definition accordingly.

      Tagging Rob_McClure and RikiM to see if they have any comments on this issue.
