ISSUE-45: Handling of lists in BLD [CP]

Handling of lists in BLD [CP]

Technical Design (multiple dialects/documents)
Raised by:
Christopher Welty
Opened on:
Although a fairly simple and ancient notion in computer science, there are many
ways to syntactically and semantically include lists in RIF dialects. Choices
include (but are not limited to): introducing standard domain vocubulary for
lists, e.g. special predicates or frame slots like car and cdr; using XML Schema
List datatypes; and introducing special vocabulary into the RIF syntax and
semantics for lists.

Related notes:

Closed by WG Resolution at the 1/22/2008 telecon. Lists will be in BLD as sequences only, however the semantics is free to treat them as pairs for the purposes of defining the model theory.
