"A pattern instance mapping P for .. some RIF common model entailment
relationship .. "

" possible solution for BGP from G under .. some RIF common model entailment
relationship .."

For example, RDFS-entails (rif-rdf-owl/#def-rdfs-entails) *should* coincide
with entailment regime used for RDFS.

I'm not sure if the restriction on appearances in signatures breaks this.

Generally, the semantics of RIF/RDF/OWL combination give entailment
relationships (and their corresponding well-formedness restrictions) that
can be used as is in this framework.

The guarantee of a finite set of answers is the main driver of the
constraints regarding SPARQL extensions for entailment regimes.  The
"strongly safe rule sets" restrictions on producers of RIF Core meet this
condition for extensions to SPARQL.  So, a SPARQL extension for RIF Core
entailment should be a simple addition to this framework
