Re[2]:  SQL5

(1) Theorem of existance of _fundamental_ flaw is not proved.
(2) You postulate, that _fundamental_ flaw must be, even not naming (entitling) them.

JR> it would be unwise to standardize it earlier.
Agruments are necessary, as usual ! Without them, it's only words.

But argument against are the following:
large manufactorers (e.g. Oracle, etc) refuse implement before standardization.

>> RS> Perhaps one of the key concepts is covered by a patent held by a jerk.

(1) Ideas (instead of algorithms) are not capable to be patented !
(2) International patent does not exist
(if you want to patent, you must make this in each country separetely).

From where you have this fear ("perhaps") ?
