from a glance at the SPARQL Protocol for RDF document, the XML protocol still ultimately uses a string for the actual query contents. since SPARQL is ostensibly designed to be used with data and applications originating on the www, are there plans for a working note/specification on expressing the queries in a web-native format like (X|HT)ML or JSON? programatically writing-out strings is error-prone and requires two steps including the subsequent reparsing which should be eliminated to eliminate sources of potential failure, and increase ease of use and developer uptake.

ive posted what im doing now, here:


wondering if i missed any existing documents on the subject..
