Of course not, how can one demonstrate without a crystal ball when SHACL
has not been defined? My assertion was precisely that implementing ShEx was
feasible and that if the SHACL high level language is similar it should
also be feasible.

Furthermore, all ShEx implementations that I know have been done by single
individuals as a proof-of-concept.

It was an example about design language flexibility, not implementability.
At this moment we are not adding features, we are choosing which are the
features. It is better now to put every language construct on the table so
the WG can select which ones should or should not be part of the language.
That's why I to propose to start designing the SHACL high-level language
instead of imposing an implementation based on SPARQL.
