Just to be clear, the schedule in its most updated form is always on the
WG's home-page. I will keep it updated. The schedule is here [1]. In
essence, here's the requirements and due dates:

1) End of April - publish use-cases
2) End of June - publish a working draft of rdb2rdf language

To be clear, I do not want to vary too much from the quite good plan the
WG has.

I agree determining the semantics is very important, and I believe we have
some good people here on the team. Once we have a good draft, we can
figure out the semantics. I am sure we can map SPARQL->SQL semantics and
vice versa if this is what is needed, and that plus a trivial mapping
language in XML fulfills the charter.
