Any FHIR capability may be 'allowed' by the system unless explicitly marked as "SHALL NOT". A few items are marked as MAY in the Implementation Guide to highlight their potential relevance to the use case.

FHIR RESTful Capabilities

Mode: client

This requirements capability statement imports the entirety of the US Core Client CapabilityStatement from US Core. Refer to the imported capability statement for full information on the capabilities defined by this capability statement.

The imports field in the JSON indicates from which capability statements an IG imports. As an implementer, you can think of this as similar to profiling. This means that the expectation of this Client Capability statement is that the entire US Core capability statement will be conformed too, in addition to specifications that follow. The JSON/XML version of the CapabilityStatement is the computable specification. This narrative is for convenience only.
