ISSUE-74 (Frame-only Core): Should Core support only frames and omit uniterms? [Core]

http://www.w3.org/2005/rules/wg/track/issues/74

Raised by: Dave Reynolds
On product: Core

By default Core should support n-ary relations (uniterms) since they are in both PRD and BLD.

However, several rule languages which might otherwise be mappable to Core do not natively support uniterms but just frame-like data structures such as java-like objects (Oracle) or RDF (N3, JenaRules).

Should we consider limiting Core to just Frames, omitting uniterms, to simplify implementability in such cases?
