Thanks for the suggestion !

The problem I see with that is that the PUID should always be of the
same type.

If we have an selection field, it might lead to errors from the
registration officer.

The idea behind the PUID is that the type is the same across the health
system (local, regional or national), so when records are
synchronized / searched / aggregated, ... we look for the same type. 

But we can think about a wizard at installation time, that could show
this selection box and, for example, change the tooltip / description
to show the ID type.

Let me know your thoughts
