      To be determined. issues: archetype-wide non-uniqueness of node-ids; coding of symbols i.e.
      should be allow a symbol like $sys_bp? This is english! But if we code it then why not use
      the existing code for "systolic blood pressure", in another syntactic way, e.g. $at0007 means "the path leading to the node marked [at0007]". However, this fails if there
      is another use of [at0007] in the same archetype - the non-uniqueness problem. Conversely
      if we force uniqueness then we no longer technically need paths, since simple atNNNN
      codes will always identify exactly the node intended and no other.

      Description

      There is currently no means of easily equating a symbol with a path. If there were,
      invariants could be stated economically using the symbols. Such symbols could also be used
      for use_node statements.
