Hi John:

You say:

  1. A clean, logic-based standard that could serve as a neutral interface
     between systems based on any kind of reasoning techniques, including
     neural networks, fuzzy logic, or some super nonmonotonic method.

and then you say:

  If you can think of any kind of research program that could possibly
  be harmed by alternative #1, please let us all know.
You appear to believe that it is possible to ensure *now* that a particular
language will have the expressive power to capture tomorrow's "super
nonmonotonic" methods.  Can you tell me what justification you have for
