ballotStatus reflects the current status of the document in terms of the RIM Harmonization process. A ballotStatus element can occur at multiple points throughout a vocabulary submission document, with the “innermost” status taking precedence. A ballotStatus has an optional note element that can be used to clarify the current state. ballotStatus has the following attributes:
The first component of a registerCodeSystem entry is the ballot status of the action. The ballotStatus entry is optional. If it is omitted, it defaults to the innermost surrounding ballotStatus. If, for example, the ballotStatus for addCodesForCodeSystem is omitted, the surrounding registerCodeSystem or selectCodeSystem ballotStatus would apply. If there is no surrounding ballotStatus, the status defaults to Proposed.
