      <comment value="Scores are commonly encountered in various clinical assessment scales. Assigning a value

       definition (or are not even represented as a concept formally, especially in [Questionnaires](questi
      onnaire.html), 
so this extension is allowed to appear ouside those preferred contexts.  Scores may even
       be assigned arbitrarily during use (hence, on Coding). The value may be constrained to
       an integer in some contexts of use. Todo: Scoring algorithms may also be defined directly,
