Rules are invoked in two different ways: one way for rules that do not
access the focus list, and one for those that do. For rules that do
not access the focus list the procedure is as follows.
For rules the do access the focus list, a similar process is
performed, but with one important difference: When accessing the
specific rule for the first Temporal Unit, which entity off
the focus list that was used is recorded, and the remaining temporal
units are forced to use the same one.
- Extract all of the TUs in the DE.
- Apply the rule to each TU.
- Put the resulting TUs back in the same order as they appeared in
the original TUL.
