Dear Ian,

BML is oriented toward communicative behaviors for ECAs: this choice was 
dictated solely for sake of simplicity (to be able to start somewhere) 
and not based on theoretical considerations. Ideally we hope to extend 
BML to encode other actions: human actions like walking, grasping and 
the like, and why not environment actions (change of light, odours, etc) 
as Christian proposes it. The problem comes to find a representation 
that embeds an extremely large numbers of phenomena. This is very 
challenging but very interesting!
Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the meeting this coming 
Monday. I am teaching all afternoon long.
All the best,

Catherine
