I found a strange discrepancy in PRD. In the definition of assert fact
actions [1], it is possible to assert class membership facts.
Now, I understand that there is a shortcut syntax for asserts in the XML [2]
and presentation [3] syntaxes. In particular, it's not necessary to write
the "Assert" for positional and frame atoms. However, if one wants to assert
a class membership formula, one is required to write the "Assert".
Why is there this discrepancy? Was that an oversight?

Cheers, Jos
