I think we need to recognize that Emanuele's design is not just about 
syntax and it allows for things that can't be done in SPARQL 1.1 without 
duplication of patterns (e.g. multiple aggregates over the same pattern).

While it's attractive to be able to do such thing, on balance, I don't 
propose we address such functionality in this round.
