I can see two issues here:

1) Will RIF include a Controlled English syntax compatible with
its abstract Horn-logic syntax? If yes, this will allow to
represent some SBVR vocabulary elements and rules.

2) Will RIF be concerned with non-formalized structured
textual representations of "human-oriented" rules, which
have the purpose to facilitate documentation and
communication of business rules and regulations?
