Christian,

I hope we can reserve an opportunity to discuss about the precise names
for the tags.

Your main point here is that the "so called keyword" is in fact a value
for an XML tag, and this is very good. My proposal for the name (for the
value of the tag) is to call it "forward chaining" or "inference". (But
please avoid "standard", it may give arise to additional thoughts).

Changhai

All,

Sorry, my cellphone was off, as usual, yesterday.

Here below, my comments re the two issues raised by Sandro re the
proposed resolution (btw, I am fine with the actual resolutions :-).

The first point is my use of the term "keyword". Maybe poor choice;
blame my poor command of the english language. I mean something like:
reserved value or whatever.

My understanding is that the indication of the intended conflict
resolution strategy cannot be an attribute, for extensibility reasons;
so, it has to be an element. My current proposal [1] is to extend the
syntax for group as follows:
    <Group>
       <behavior>
          <ConflictResolution> xsd:anyURI </ConflictResolution>?
          <Priority> -10,000 =< xsd:int =< 10,000 </Priority>?
       </behavior>?
       <sentence> [ RULE | Group ] </sentence>*
    </Group>
where a specific value (proposed: rif:standardForward) would be reserved
to indicate that standard forward chaining strategy we propose. Hence
the term "keyword" (because "rifstandardForward" would be a keyword
indicating that strategy, wouldn't it? Or does "keyword" mean something
completely different from what I think?).

Same for the second point (I mean: same blame): yes, "not being a
conformance point" was meant to mean "suggested, not required for
conformant implementation".

Cheers,

Christian
