Have a look at the new version at <http://bentoweb.org/refs/rulesets.html>.
(The only problem with the current version is that it doesn't 
distinguish between the SC numbering mechanisms that have been used 
so far. The current one is simply SC x.x.x [Level y], but some 
previous drafts had GL x.x Level y SC z. See June 2005.)

Best regards,

Christophe
