The proposal, as I understand it, is to publish a new draft of "RIF
Core" which is just a note forwarding people to BLD.  Otherwise, people
looking at Core would have no indication that there is newer work.
Here's the text I've drafted:

   RIF Core Design - Placeholder


   This document is a placeholder. The [13]Rule Interchange Format
   (RIF) Working Group has decided that the design previously published
   as "RIF Core" ([14]30 March 2007 draft) is better considered as
   basis for Logic Rules, rather than all kinds of rules. In the
   future, a new Core may be published, but for now, interested parties
   are referred to [15]RIF Basic Logic Dialect (BLD).

Body (in italic):

   This document is a placeholder. The design specified in the previous
   draft of this document ([24]30 March 2007 draft) was intended to
   serve as a core, common to all RIF dialects. The Working Group has
   since decided not to use that design as a core. That design has been
   renamed and improved and is available as [25]RIF Basic Logic Dialect
   (BLD). There is also a publication, [26]RIF RDF and OWL Compatibity.
   At the time of this publication, it has not yet been determined
   whether or not a new design for RIF Core will be published in the
