Jim Melton says XQuery is very uncomfortable with RIF Lists being
indexed from zero [1].  In our telecon, we were pretty unsure about it
ourselves.  I suggest we mark this At Risk, and see what feedback we
get.  Please reply and indicate support or objections...

Also, I see our AtRisk numbering is broken:
http://www.w3.org/2005/rules/wiki/Special:Search?search=atrisk&fulltext=Search

I see four different items there, and this indexing-from-zero will be a
fifth if we do it.  Okay for me to renumber them (making Safeness be #4
instead of a second #2) and make them link to a wiki page listing all of
them?  (that's what we did with OWL 2.  See, for example,
http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/CR-owl2-syntax-20090611/ )

I look for the chairs to tell me whether we have enough consensus on
this to publish later today (10/01), or need to wait until next week
(10/06).
