Remarks

SRs are very sequence prolific, and because some implementation encode them incorrectly, readDataSetFlat allows the programmer to attempt to read and reconstruct a valid dataset.

Some things to consider about flattened datasets. These are only useful for attempting to decode badly encoded sequences as a last resort. The list of elements will not be ordered, may contain duplicates, and findElement will find the first element. Psuedo element delimiter items (Tags.Item, Tags.ItemDelimitationItem, and Tags.SequenceDelimitationItem will be inserted to mark the position of sequence items and sequence delimiters in the dataset. Defined length sequences will have items, but no sequence delimiters. Defined length items will have items but no item delimiters. Note that datasets that are read flatly can not currently be properly written by DCF, although no checks are made.

TODO: Clone and copy constructor support for flattened datasets is not yet implemented.
