More of an enhancement suggestion really. So that's a (hypothetical) URI prefix for one coding system.

More linked data = ""> supports a number of coding systems:

Somewhat unfortunately, many of the referenced schema do not have canonical URIs as keys (which can be fudged w/ an ad-hoc prefix like "icd10:" even in unstructured notes).

Autocomplete on \w+: might be usable.

Follow-up Comment #1:

I'm a little confused what this means. I don't think the icd10 package uses
URIs like that... or is this report an enhancement request? We try to use
robust standards - icd10pcs, icd10, fhir, etc. which I think the author is
trying to get at. I agree that using known coding systems is important, and we
do that in, for example, fhir when icd10 codes are preferred. I'm going to
close and mark as invalid, since we've already done work on this topic and
it's not a bug.
