Given the situation, and what others have said, the only thing I'd  
like is a way to construct query strings, which would make sparql  
nicer to work with. To explain, currently it seems like you'd do:

<p:document href="http://example.com/rq? 
query=.............encoded.noise............."/>

Which is entirely functional, but not very readable. Any chance of:

<p:document href="http://example.com/rq">
	<param name="query">
SELECT * WHERE ....
	</param>
</p:document>

?

I suggest this on the basis of a very cursory glance at xproc.  
Apologies if this possible already.
