Makes sense. In fact, the more I think about it it seems that
the AIL could be used for a lot of things in all layers.

Maybe it makes sense to integrate some sort of a switchbox
function into the BL that allows the BL to chain in the AIL
everywhere where it is needed.

Maybe it makes even more sense to split up the AIL in a number
of blocks ( rule based, genetic etc. ) to enhance its
configurability and consequently its versatility.
