What is Oracle's objection to the use of Turtle as R2RML syntax?

Souri, Ashok,

We have a long-standing open issue regarding Oracle's objection to the use of Turtle as the normative syntax for R2RML mapping documents:

   ISSUE-57: r2rml-document-syntax

Making progress on this issue requires action from you. 

I proposed a compromise earlier, and it has not yet received a response that addresses its contents:


If the compromise isn't acceptable to Oracle, then I'd like to see a concrete explanation of the reason for the objection.

What pain does the current design cause for end users?
What pain does it cause for mapping authors?
What pain does it cause for implementers?
What pain does it cause for the editors and the WG?

The only concrete reason given for the objection was in [1] and it is addressed in the compromise proposal.

The pain that would be caused by Oracle's change proposal is stated here:
