features that won't be on the survey

Message-ID: <49E8F8E3.2060201@thefigtrees.net>
To: SPARQL Working Group <public-rdf-dawg@w3.org>
Here are the features that I am proposing to _exclude_ from the survey 
(and the associated reasons). Please speak up if you'd like any of them 
to be included.

Query by reference		0 / 9 / 7 straw poll
path lengths & path variables	1 / 6 / 10 straw poll
return format			1 / 6 / 6 straw poll
xproc				0 / 0 / 13 straw poll
xml literal results		1 / 5 / 6 straw poll
RDF serialization for SPARQL	no apparent WG support
constructing containers & collections	no apparent WG support
JavaScript functions		apparent WG consensus is "too early"

There are some others that have not been discussed on telecons OR 
mailing list. My gut is that many of these probably do not have 
significant energy for WG standardization. If you are interested in 
seeing any of these appear on the survey, please start a thread on the 
mailing list about them. (Consider these "at risk" for appearing on the 
survey. :-) )

cost model interface
cursors
one-of group pattern
timeout and resource constraints

The following will not be on the survey because they are special cases 
of other features, and should be decided later (if the other features 
are worked on):

sample aggregate 		(special case of aggregate functions)
creating iris and literals	(special case of function library, and
				 scalar expressions in construct or
				 assignment)


Comments, complaints, compliments, please. :-)

good weekend, all,
Lee
