Right. For the record, that was exactly the motivation that ARDA (now 
DTO) had for the IKRIS project. They were already using several 
systems which did sterling service, all using different logics and 
notations. The purpose of IKRIS was to allow intercommunication 
between these, precisely so that their various advantages could be 
retained within a single overarching framework. The fact that we 
finished up doing this by translating them all into and out of IKL 
shouldn't obscure the importance of that motivation.    (02)
