Yes, +1 for option 3; otherwise we would need to define the semantics of combinations of the conflict resolution strategies, e.g. a kind of priority between the different strategies or a module concept where the conflict resolutions is local to the imported rule set. However, there are not many rule systems which implement such distributed scoped modules.

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.
