For the avoidance of doubt: I absolutely support that the 
interoperability between PRD and BLD should be maximal. But I see this 
as an XML syntax and a semantics related question; not a PS related one.

For the avoidance of doubts, again: I completely agree with that too. I 
think that I made it clear enough and early enough in the life of this 
working group, that I think that RIF should be specified as an 
interchange format between existing (and future) languages, not a rule 
language per se.

Well, if that combination of -1 and +1 means that you are neutral over 
agreeing with me or Gary, then I have to be neutral over that myself... 
Because I completely agree with you combination (and I thought that I 
had expressed these views quite strongly myself. Well, that may have 
been strongly, but not clearly enough :-)

Cheers,
