I posted details of where people could obtain more information about
RSRE's TDF (the OSF ANDF) sometime last year (when I was working at
Harlequin). Harlequin had some documentation for it and RSRE were
producing more at the time.

>From what I remember, TDF is like Ten15, in that it's a set of algebraic
lattices, using constructors to make bits of TDF out of smaller bits of
TDF (so you end up with a tree-shaped structure). A full textual
description of the tree was typically vast, because it includes verbose
constructors for list-like comprehensions, but of course there is a more
compact notation, and a binary encoding.
