Hierarchical value sets

Description

See https://discourse.openehr.org/t/a-case-for-hierarchical-value-sets/977

We need the ability to create value sets in archetypes (and templates) that are hierarchical. This should be done using "contains" and not "is a" semantics, since the items on a higher hierarchical level are not necessarily strict subtypes of the lower level items.

Example of hierarchical value set in FHIR: https://www.hl7.org/fhir/valueset-diagnostic-report-status.html

For example:
"Pulse regular"
"Pulse irregular"
"Pulse irregular" contains "Pulse regularly irregular"
"Pulse irregular" contains "Pulse irregularly irregular"
