ISSUE-39: RIF should support import or inclusion of rulesets

http://www.w3.org/2005/rules/wg/track/issues/39

Raised by: Dave Reynolds
On product: Technical Design

We would like the ability for a RIF rule set to explicitly import or include
other rulesets. 

This relates to the issue of ruleset merging (a requirement recorded in the UCR
document).

It also relates to the need for a module mechanism as discussed in
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rif-wg/2007Jun/0071.html. We will
require a module mechanism for things like scoping of scoped negation.

This is raised at F2F7 as part of the discussion on data sets since importing a
rule set comprising just facts is one mechanism for referencing external data.
