This discussion started on the mailing list and it seems appropriate to open a
task here for further discussion.

To summarize, there are good arguments to integrate certain codesets into the
data models - clarity, simplicity, interoperability, and so on. For example,
instead of defining non-standard medication route data, use the SNOMED CT
codes and descriptions. However, there are various issues that have been
brought up, including licensing issues, the significant work required, and if
there is need for them. For example, FHIR is moving towards using SNOMED CT
codes but there may be hidden licensing issues.
