Generally fine, a few comments:

o No reference to the ability to consume or generate particular data - 
especially RDF and OWL.

o No reference to any ability to "gensym" new objects/skolem constants 
within rules. Not sure if that is important or relevant.

o The RIFRAF terminology used here is fine for working group use but if 
we ever wanted this to be filled in by people outside the working group 
them some further clarification and simplification of some of the 
questions might be worth considering.

o When the questions refer to URLs for more information e.g. 1.2 it 
would nice if those were HTML links.

Minor nits:

1.1.3 suggest dropping this question and have a final "Anything else 
you'd like to tell us" box.

1.5 Drop the mention of RDF/OWL that's not really a "slotted" notation.

2.2 seems to be a duplicate of 2.1

2.3.3 Some more explanation would be handy. How does this notion relate 
to procedural attachment?

2.7 doesn't give an option for the "no labels supported" case.

2.8, 2.9.1 don't give options for the "unsupported" case other than "other"


2.1 s/deveral/several/

2.3.2 s/defth/depth/
