Hi Greg,

One way might be to send the ideas to the XQuery Working Group:
 http://www.w3.org/XML/Query/#discussion

The XQuery WG may not be able to do anything with them today as it
is operating under its charter:
 http://www.w3.org/2003/09/xmlap/xml-query-wg-charter.html

However, there are public mailing list archives for the group and
thus your message would be a dated record of communicating your ideas
to the group.

Hope that helps. 

Meanwhile, would it be possible for one of my colleagues to chat
with you or your management about W3C Membership? I think it would be
a valuable exchange for us and possibly for you as well. Thank you,

 - Ian
