I just re-read..
"DaveB noted that a normative dependency on XQuery would be incompatible
with the current DAWG schedule."

and that reminded me... we do have a normative dependency; we're
using XQuery functions and operators. At the recent meetings in
Boston, Paul Cotton and I discussed the schedule a bit; I asked
about scheduling F&O to go before the rest of XQuery, but that
doesn't look doable. For one thing, the editors save time by
batching things together, and for another, Paul and I weren't
completely confident there are no technical dependencies (for
example, from equality operators to the XQuery formal semantics).

I made a note in our schedule about the dependencies I'm aware of,
including this one.

We can go to CR as long as XQuery is no more than one maturity
level behind, and we accept that XQuery getting to CR is critical
for SPARQL getting to PR. Hmm... that's the process as I understand
it; I can't confirm from the process document, though.
