I agree as well. I have been leaning towards something like:
RDF Query Specification [1] 
from Ashok Malhotra (IBM) <petsa@us.ibm.com>  and Neel Sundaresan (IBM)
<neel@almaden.ibm.com> 

Just wonder how others felt about it. 

Second what would the result of such a query (regardless of the QL) be? A
list of triples, a list of lists of triples, a RDF document or list of RDF
documents? 

Cheers Tod...
