Why not simply support the typical list built-ins of ISO Prolog. They are
supported by most rule engines which provide support for lists.

An alternative to the collection of aggregation operators might be to 
have map/reduce functions which take a list and the iri of a 
unary/binary function.

That would be one way to allow fairly general list processing while 
ensuring finite termination.
