Well, i thought about that, too. The reasons why I felt that a separate
table would be better is that
 a fk will waste less space than a multi-item string and we will probably
have more than one appearance of the same combination since there will be more
than one item in a the particular score list.

Well, this is even possible in the originally suggested table because one
can assign table columns to whatever entry field you want. We can even replace
the single fields by a string array.

I believe that in this case you will definitely need a separator because you
can't be sure that different fields are not even partially equal (think of
diagnoses that contain substance names, surnames that match other terms and so
on). In these cases you might get the wrong score list.
