Adopting such an approach would make it impossible to use XSL
Transformations to subset the KIF data, or to transform it into another
format. By adopting a more complex XML representation for the KIF statements
you can begin to use standard transformation tools to subset your KIF
statements into a form that could be used in other environments.    (02)
