Axiom already contains a significant amount of algebra for
dealing with intervals. See:

I know that this domain is critical for some of Axiom's integration
algorithms. I am sure that there are some important extensions that
could be made to here.

I am not convinced that the concept of a proviso is directly
relevant to intervals. It seems too general to me.
