    In the terms of the Meta-Object Facility (MOF), the metamodel describes 
    the structures in terms of objects, properties and relationships among them. 
    A set of business rules captured in such a set of structures is a "model" 
    of a particular business (or part of it) and is an "instance of the metamodel".
    In MOF terms, the Business Rules Metamodel consists of two major components:
    *'Abstract syntax', which presents the linguistic elements of a business rule,
    together with their properties and relationships, as a UML class diagram,
    using MOF 2.0.
    *'Static semantics': well-formedness rules for constructing a meaningful
    population of the abstract syntax model, stated as constraints on the 
    meta-classes, the meta-associations (relationships), and the meta-attribute 
    values (properties). These constraints are usually stated in OCL.
