Thanks for the notice.

I have finished specifying and have implemented 90% of my simple
grammar annotation scheme that is general enough to support all
the kinds of context-sensitive XML serialization rules that you
have devised in the BLD document. It mostly works and I hope to
release it to the WG within this week. It will basically allow to
serialize the BLD "human-readable" syntax into a RIF BLD XML tree
simply by annotating relevant grammar rules and/or terminal symbols
in the grammar. The first version of it works but I need to test it
further and finish documenting it, so I can hope to make it available
to anyone interested to use it within a few days.

Yet to be done also to perfect the tool is to make it infer the
XML schema from the grammar annotations. I hope to do that eventually
as well in the coming weeks.

The real test of course will be to develop similarly annotated grammars
for actual rule languages targeting the BLD/XML schema. I myself will
try my luck with ILOG's Rules Language while we extend the BLD  to
support production rules.
