  not there. any tangible outcomes to report? anywhere to place input?

We basically would have to throw in the following proposals for SPARQL2:
- propose marriage with XQuery [1] (that might be outside SPARQL itself, 
since it affects both SPARQL and XQuery)
- using sparql as a view-definition language [2,3]
- a proper syntax for aggregates and vuilt-ins in the construct part
  (our proposal is documented in [2])
