Thanks Tom - this could finally make me an ADL Workbench user ;)

Using the rules could be a useful approach. One thing we decided in the SEC meeting last week was to rework the 'rules' part of ADL as a small core model in the BASE component and then re-use that back into ADL2 and also GDL. This will result in a new small BASE/Rules specification and the ADL2 and GDL models of rules will then be rewritten to be based on this. I'm working on the BASE/Rules component right now, and will put it up very soon in draft (status = DEVELOPMENT) form, so anyone can have a go at working on it.

I've managed to clean up some of the semantics around functions and variables etc, so I think the initial version will be reasonable. There are others who know this area better than I do, so I encourage them to have a look and if interested to contribute to improving the models, get involved.

BTW the ADL workbench does display rules:

Both ADL1.4 and ADL2 support assertions (rules in ADL2)
The bad news about that is that I believe that no ADL editor supports them yet (as far as I know). We are now researching in this area and will have some results in the near future.
