               value="An element may be labelled as must support. This extension clarifies which types/profiles/targetProfiles are must-support. It has no meaning if the element itself is not must-support. If the element is labelled must-support, and none of the options are labelled as must support, then an application must support at least one of the possible options, but is not required to support all of them. Specific details on what it means to 'support' the specified profile will be defined either by the implementation guide, by the profile and/or in usage notes for the element holding the extension.  If this extension is not declared on a mustSupport element, the presumption is that implementations need only support one of the potential types unless other documentation in the specification explicitly dictates otherwise."/>

               value="An element may be labelled as must support. This extension clarifies which types/profiles/targetProfiles are must-support. It has no meaning if the element itself is not must-support. If the element is labelled must-support, and none of the options are labelled as must support, then an application must support at least one of the possible options, but is not required to support all of them. Specific details on what it means to 'support' the specified profile will be defined either by the implementation guide, by the profile and/or in usage notes for the element holding the extension.  If this extension is not declared on a mustSupport element, the presumption is that implementations need only support one of the potential types unless other documentation in the specification explicitly dictates otherwise."/>
