Tim,

FYI, one of my earlier drafts [1] gives some specific recommendations
for the design of languages of different kinds including SQL. One of the
benefits of URIzation is context-free recognition of referenced objects
(e.g. field in a relational table).

The DL'00 paper [2] demonstrates mixing of some very different (Web)
languages (page 5).
