The RIF Core must be able to accept RDF triples as data
It must be possible for the RIF rules to use information in the form of RDF triples as a source of data conveying the RDF semantics.
Position in the DC structure
Level: Requirement [PROPOSED]
This is needed to make the RIF at least minimally a part of the semantic web and to fullfil the WG charter.
Note that this requirement is separate from the requirement that the RIF is to use RDF/XML as its method of transmitting data.
