The paper you referred to was a huge epiphany for me. 
Having previously worked in the business world using COBOL and FORTRAN 
the beauty and elegance of APL blew me away. It still does. 

At IPSA we used to model proposed changes (mostly algorithms) to the interpreter in APL first. 
And then wrote the Assembly code to implement.

That was my point. If we could establish APL as a language for describing algorithms.  I was thinking
along the lines of Iverson's "Notation as a tool of thought" which is also free now:
