Tara,    (01)

I admit that the excerpt (quoted below) from Section 6.3 of the
CL standard is not very clear.    (02)

The basic idea is that if you import multiple texts (collections
of statements in one or more CL dialects) they must use vocabulary
that refers to the same universe of discourse.    (03)

The standard is being revised and updated, and Section 6.3 will
have to be revised and clarified.    (04)

------------------------------------------------------------------    (05)

All texts which are published and identified on a network shall be
mutually interpretable with all other
texts on the network which can import them, over the same universe of
reference and domain of discourse,
and with their vocabularies merged. This condition applies to all texts
which might possibly import other texts,
even if they do not in fact do so in a particular state of the network.    (06)
