Does anyone know if the SPIN submission [1] is likely to get any further
attention and possibly move onto a standards track?

The W3 acknowledgement [2] indicated it might be taken up by the RIF
working group.

Before I recently found SPIN, I was about to implement some of
capabilities independently, since my use of SPARQL requires templating,
constraint definition, API documentation, and rule interoperability.
Quite by accident I saw a reference to SPIN and realized it would meet
many of my needs. I'm wondering how others have gotten very far with
SPARQL without using something like SPIN, and if the further development
of SPIN towards a W3C recommendation would advance the use of SPARQL.
