Framing seems hard enough by itself.  Wouldn't it be better to just tackle Framing first, and later look at the possibility of bundling a query capability?

the case would need to be made, that a bundled query capability provides sufficient additional expressiveness when compared to combining simple framing with other independent facilities to outweigh the significant additional complexity.
