I'd like to point out that the negotiations to establish the 4 year EU 
Network of Excellence REWERSE (= Reasoning on the Web with Rules and 
Semantics) probably starting in March/April 2004 are at their final
stage. It is an essential objective of this network to contribute to 
W3C's rule standardization efforts. It would be good if similar 
DARPA/NSF initiatives would be coordinated/synchronized with REWERSE.
