Is the multi-axial hierarchy finally "complete"?

I noticed that the multi-axial hierarchy as of version 2.61 appears to include all codes, which from what I understand is a departure from the past. For example, in version 2.59, the multi axial hierarchy included about 55K codes.

I’m wondering if we can expect this to be the case in all future LOINC releases, that the MA hierarchy will be “complete”?

Yes, the intention is that from now on every LOINC code in the LOINC Table will be placed in the multi-axial hierarchy - at least at a rudimentary level.
