Issue

In some legislations (for example in Germany) there is the need to identify TWO or MORE legal authenticators in a clinical document.

Recommendation

Change cardinality of legalAuthenticator from 0..1 to 0..*

Rationale

Discussion

March 23, 2010: We'd like to understand this use case better from Kai before taking action. (We understand that there are types of contracts where two parties need to attest to the accuracy of the document).

Recommended Action Items

Resolution

Sept 9, 2010: no further input from Kai. Will close for now, and invite Kai to offer further clarification. Opposed: 0; Abstain: 0; in favor: 14.
