Defining a SQL Fragment

I did some research on SQL specs and found that SQL does define some levels.

SQL-99 Core is essentially SQL-92 Entry-level + a few features

SQL-08 Core is the same

SQL-11 (Forthcoming) is the same.

So, we could standardize on SQL08 Core.  This gives you more than most 
applications use.
In addition, individual implementations could state that the support 
additional optional features.

As I said on the call, I don't want to restrict SQL beyond this.  If we 
do, either people will ignore
the restrictions or the standard will become a joke.

All the best, Ashok
