Question about W3C Rule Interchange Format


I recently came across the "W3C Rule Interchange Format" initiative ( I think it could be of some relevance to this PLING IG and related discussions (in particular about the portability and transaltion of rules/policies across heterogeneous policy management systems).

However, I have a few practical questions:

1) What is the current applicability of this standard in the policy domain? Any example, real-world case-study, etc.?

2) Has this standard already been taken onboard by any vendor/solution?

Your input/view would really be appreciated.

Best regards,
