There's actually a more general proposed architectural framework on the table.

It seeks to federate existing commercial rules packages and forthcoming SW 
rules languages, by means of loose, but human-meaningful, coupling.

The proposal is outlined in Section 2 of 
http://www.w3.org/2004/12/rules-ws/paper/19 .

Thanks in advance for thoughts about it.
