Q1. Erik Sandewall:

You were saying that explanation closure requires determinism, and this seems to be an important point in the motivation of your approach. I do not agree with this point; with the right formulations it is possible to use explanation closure even for the action laws of nondeterministic actions.

This on-line debate page is part of a discussion at recent workshop; similar pages are set up for each of the workshop articles. The discussion is organized by the area Reasoning about Actions and Change within the Electronic Transactions on Artificial Intelligence (ETAI).
