Er... 'rules' is a noun in the subject :)

Found via:
	<http://blogs.msdn.com/moustafa/archive/2006/05/21/603415.aspx>

We see "Introduction to the Windows Workflow Foundation Rules Engine":

	<http://msdn.microsoft.com/windowsvista/default.aspx?pull=/library/ 
en-us/dnlong/html/intWF_FndRlsEng.asp>

"""With the availability of Windows Workflow Foundation (WF),  
Microsoft is introducing new rules capabilities to the WinFX  
developer platform. These capabilities extend from simple conditions  
that drive activity execution behavior all the way up to complex  
RuleSets executed by a full-featured forward chaining rules engine.
The rules capability allows for the declarative modeling of units of  
application logic within the scope of an overall business process.  
Sample scenarios for rules engine technology are order validation,  
pricing calculation, promotion enforcement, exception process  
management, and claims adjudication and management."""

If "widespread adoption" is an important virtue, it seems like we  
should try to accommodate/engage Microsoft.

Cheers,

Bijan.
