Hmmm. I agree with your prescription, but not your diagnosis. Look at the list of editors at http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/WD-xquery-20011220/, Google a few of them , and and then tell me that these folks "forget about the database world." <grin> Anyway, I [personally, the corporate line may be different] agree that XQuery badly needs update support sooner rather than later. I can't imagine that people feel as strongly about this issue as they do about patents, but look what happened when the rest of the world told the W3C that the patent policy working group was going down an unacceptable path [shameless self-promotion: see http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2001/12/19/patents.html]. If enough people make this point to mailto:www-xml-query-comments@w..., then the W3C (either the working group or the advisory committee) will surely see the light.
