The W3C Rule Interchange Format (RIF) Working Group has published
a draft of its Core design for public review.

The abstract:

      This document ... specifies the core design for a format that
      allows rules to be translated between rule languages and thus
      transferred between rule systems.

      In Phase 1, the RIF Working Group is first defining a Core
      Condition Language. This condition language is envisioned to be
      a shared part of all RIF dialects. As a first step, it is used
      in this document to define rule bodies of the RIF Core Horn
      Language. We give an abstract syntax (asn06 with UML
      visualization) and semantics (multisorted model theory) for the
      condition language and Horn rule language. We also give example
      concrete syntax forms (EBNF and XML) which in the current
      working draft are for illustrative/explanatory purposes only. 

The document:
