Good point.  Now:

   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 to lower its priority on designing a common core and
   to first progress on the design of a logic dialect. With this in
   mind, the previous core 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 Compatibility. 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 future.
