Hi

This would be a matter of perception.

The fact is, as a regular web developer would see it, that if the WG
,manages to agree on update, aggregates, expressions, grouping and nesting,
then it becomes, for the first time, possible to write what one would call a
regular database driven application without relying on vendor specific
extensions.

On its own merits, this would warrant a major version number.  But if one
does give it a new major number, one offhand acknowledges that the previous
spec was somehow insufficient.  Hence it seems that the threshold for
issuing new major numbers is very high.
