There seems to be scope for a PREDICATE CALCULUS II
with {set notation} instead of using e(X,Y).

This reminds me of an article about development of the XML REQUEST

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XMLHttpRequest
The World Wide Web Consortium published a Working Draft specification
for the XMLHttpRequest object on April 5, 2006, edited by Anne van
Kesteren of Opera Software and Dean Jackson of W3C.[17]

Its goal is "to document a minimum set of interoperable features based
on existing implementations, allowing Web developers to use these
features without platform-specific code."

------------------

It could be worth setting up a LOGIC CONSORTIUM of our own to define
the notation standard of PC2

I should be able to extend PROLOG to run Queries in this form..

all( X , less(X,10) , add( X, {2,3,4}, 20) )
