ISSUE-40: Builtins and logic functions in BLD

http://www.w3.org/2005/rules/wg/track/issues/40

Raised by: Christopher Welty
On product: Technical Design


At the moment the WG has agreed to support "builtins", in particular those
defined for supported XS datatypes, however the syntactic and semantic treatment
of builtins has not been made clear.  

One issue is how they will relate to functions in the syntax (e.g. are builtins
just logic functions?).  

Another issue is whether builtins will be sensitive to "order" as they are in
query languages and production rules; in these cases, the order is understood to
be required to "bind" variables before the builtin is called.
