I find it quite easy - because you've already invested a lot of work in one.
And there are a number of people who already have. I invite all of you to help work on the RIM Mappings for the existing resources that are of interest to you - they've fallen behind, and fundamentally this is driven by a lack of implementer interest in them.

A bit late to the discussion.
Lloyd, are you asking why we should be mapping FHIR resources to the RIM?

If you have one already, then yes it may make sense to use it.  However, if you're coming at the problem new ..., I'm not sure what using a RIM back end for FHIR would buy you.  Not saying it wouldn't buy you anything, just that I can't see it.
