<< You have the right idea. BLD is intended to be able to express the
kinds of rules that are expressible in most (logic-based) rule
languages. Thus BLD does not have the power to resolve semantic
discrepencies between different LP systems, quite the opposite - it
avoids that by providing syntax&semantics only for the kinds of rules
for which there are no discrepencies in different systems.>>

I guess this could be clarified further to avoid bias, as PRD-targeted
(and indeed most AFAIK) rule languages are "based on" (some aspects of)
logic. May I suggest for YJH1:
