Randall and Pat,    (01)

I endorse Pat's negative views of ICL.    (02)

And by the way, I visited Stanford in 2006, when the ICL
axioms were being discussed.  John McCarthy was at the same
meeting, and as I walked out with him, I asked his opinion
about various theories of context.  He said that it was
premature to propose any kind of standard for context
theories.    (03)

I believe that it's important to have languages such as IKL
that make it possible to delimit a conjunction of statements
and to talk about them at the metalevel.  That option was
available in conceptual graphs since 1976.  But I agree with
Pat and JMC that it's premature to freeze any set of axioms
in an official standard for context theories.    (04)
