To me it makes a lot of sense to call it "Rule", because we are creating 
a rule interchange format (to be honest :-)). Things that are not rules 
(e.g., queries, constraints) can be called something else in FLD.
That said, I'm not married to the label "Rule".  It could also be called 
something like "Formula".

I actually never understood why we would need groups?
To me the original notion we had in the working group, of a ruleset 
containing a bunch of rules, seems to be the best solution.

Best, Jos
