takesPlatformSpecificSentinelValues
A RepresentedVariable may have more than one sets of SentinelValueDomains, one for each type of software platform on which related InstanceVariables might be instantiated. All of the SentinelValueDomains must have SentinelConceptualDomains that correspond exactly. This allows codes for missing values to be explicitly matched across platforms.
