Re: How would option b) on the last straw poll of 12 March work?

Furthermore, what did people actually vote for:

b.1) Only the higher-level language shall become standard and SPARQL 
could be an add-on outside of the standard (e.g. shaclx:sparql)

b.2) Both the higher-level language and SPARQL would become standard but 
in separate deliverables, both normative.

The wording "main specification" leaves both interpretations open. With 
b.1 the obvious consequence will be that nobody will use SPARQL because 
it will be regarded as vendor-specific extension.
