If I mentioned an editor for the SQL-related parts I was probably talking 
about an editor for the SQL language subset that the database section will 
eventually need to require for interoperability, as opposed to the 
database and storage section (which as noted, is mostly done already). 
There's nothing to split out as far as that goes, though, there's no text 
written yet at all for that.

If anyone does want to help with such a section, that would be really 
useful. We would probably have to wait for a second implementation, 
though, as I expect this would mostly need to be written by reverse 
engineering implementations rather than by designing the language.
