Giorgos,

We discussed your report and were interested in what the RIF WG has  
in mind for dialects.  From the IRC log (now linked from the URW3  
Member Home Page)

<KathyL> Ken mentioned the idea of dialects from RIF
<anne_cregan> Some methods may be incommensurate, and identifying  
that is in itself a valuable contribution
<KathyL> In fact, Ken discussed with somebody that uncertainty  
information might be represented
<KathyL> as a dialect in RIF
<Ken> Anne's idea of ways to capture info for different methods could  
be like RIF dialects built over a base


<Ken> Q: is RIF just going to write official dialects or will it  
provide enough of a documented framework that others can write dialects?
<Ken> do new dialects need RIF WG blessing?


<KathyL> Kathy suggested that if there is a mechanism to define dialects
<KathyL> then we can allow dialects to evolve de facto
<KathyL> without declaring them official prematurely

Can you comment on this?

Thanks,

Ken
