I doubt this is right. I do not understand why distributed programming
is now mentioned.

All what I, and as I understand Gerd, suggest, is that the RIF should
make it possible to attach annotations to rulesets stating: "this
ruleset contains only deduction rules", or "this ruleset contains
normative rules", or"this rule set contains only reactive rules". Would
such annotations contradict the charter?
