This document specifies how to make new Rule Interchange Format (RIF) dialects. Each dialect is a collection of components that works together, forming an interlingua. New dialects are needed when no existing dialect provides for interchange of required rule-language features. The RIF Working Group intends to provide some standard components and dialects, but other (non-standard) components and dialects may be developed by others, perhaps for later standardization.
This document also specifies how systems which read RIF must behave, so that they can handle unknown dialects.
