All,

It occured to me that we did not implement, in PRD, the resolution from 
F2F12 [1] about importing RIF documents...

I see four ways to implement that resolution in PRD:
1. restrict the import to Core documents (only PRD documents that are also 
Core documents can have imports, and they can import only other Core 
documents);
2. retrict the import to PRD documents with implicit conflict resolution 
strategies (or explicit rif:forwardChaining conflict resolution strategy, 
which is the same) and they can import only other PRD documents with the 
same restriction;
3. restrict the import to the case where the importing and imported 
documents are all associated with the same conflict resolution strategy;
4. allowing import of other PRD documents without restriction.

I propose to exclude option 4 as to ocomplex: we have no idea of the 
semantics; I also propose that we exclude options 1 and 2 as overly 
restrictive, and that we implement option 3. We have only one conflict 
resolution strategy that is specified normatively, anyway; so, it might 
seem that option 3 is the same as option 2; except that it makes extension 
to other conflict resolution strategies easy (or so it seems)...

What do you think?

I drafted a section on documents and imports in RIF-PRD [2] according to 
option 3. I have, still, to update the section 8.5 accordingly.

Please, read and react.
