Sort of... it's not run by the W3C systems team,
but by Andy Seaborne, one of the editors, and by HP labs,
I think.
 http://sparql.org/sparql.html

I think that if you link to that with a suitable disclaimer
about it being available on an experimental, best-effort
basis, that should be good.

Say, Andy, that page isn't signed, and there are no terms
of service. Would you please add something about who runs
the service and such? For inspiration, see
  http://www.w3.org/2005/08/online_xslt/#conditions


If you do make links to results from that service,
for redundancy and fairness, Ian,
also give an alternative in a footnote/appendix...
  http://xmlarmyknife.org/docs/rdf/sparql/
and cite the community-maintained list of SPARQL demos...
  http://esw.w3.org/topic/DawgShows
and endpoints...
  http://esw.w3.org/topic/SparqlEndpoints

That xmlarmyknife is the one with a SPARQL service
that groks (some parts of) GRDDL, FYI.
