So then someone would declare the LogicFormalism class somewhere, and 
someone would also declare an instance of that class corresponding to 
SWRL (or DRS or SWRL++ or whatever) and then we'd mention that instance 
as the value of inLanguage (or whatever better name we come up with for 
that property).  Is that what you have in mind here?

Yeah, that's what I was thinking also.
