This is inconsistent because it includes, at:

the rule syntax (which is missing the arg list):

   rule rulename { statements }

and also, at:

the rule instance (which *has* the arg list):

   rule report ( pronoun index ? : state : names + )

of course you could *define* the rulename as being composed of the "rule
identifier" followed by ( arglist ) ; however, this is not what the
casual reader would expect. Shouldn't this be changed to accommodate
such a casual reader?
