i.e. http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-rdf-sparql-query-20050217/

note that there's a newer one...
http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-rdf-sparql-query-20050419/

> The document uses a describe-by-examples style.  This is easy to understand but can give the impression that the language is more restrictive than it is.  For example, as you read section 2 you get the impression that only exact matches are supported.  Only much later do you find out that, in fact, functions and operators are also supported.   Additional wording could be used to distinguish examples from the grammar.

I don't know if that comment is obsoleted by the newer spec; I'll let
the editors follow up.

More on your other comments separately...
