I'm pleased that my request for test cases spawned
quite a bit of thoughtful discussion, but now I'm
struggling to keep track of which designs are supported by whom...
I have been hoping that a summary would emerge
magically... but I suppose I should produce one...

Meanwhile... at the risk of asking Kendall to
repeat himself...

Do you have some other contract that you prefer? Or do you prefer
to just leave out the constraint that Yoshio and Andy are
advocating, and let the contract be unspecified?

Do you think it's OK (i.e. technically correct, if not high quality)
for a service to ignore FROM and FROM NAMED altogether? Or is your
position that FROM and FROM NAMED be "lower bounds"
on the dataset used to service a query? Or something else?
