I wasn't trying to impart a particular lesson. My intention, not knowing
what DAWG members know or don't know about it, was simply to provide data on
the experience of the Query wg in the event that might prove useful to the
group. In response to your questions, I've asked several members of the wg
about their XQueryX experience. If they see fit to pass that on to me, I'll
be happy to share it with the group.
