Somewhere between low-priority and out-of-scope.

We discussed the state-of-the-art in insert/update and other
future directions at a recent meeting...


Comments like this about scope/features are more relevant to our
use cases and requirements document

than to the query language spec.

Our charter says...

"The RDF Data Access Working Group is only required to defined a
protocol for conveying queries and their results. However, the group
should be aware that it is likely that their work will be extended to
support modifying the graph and should expend reasonable effort to
ensure that such extension is easy, moreover, the group may include such
an ability."

insert/update isn't among our requirements or even objectives
so far. i.e. the WG seems to think we can advance the state of the
art without doing INSERT just yet. If you think W3C shouldn't do
a QL at all without insert, please elaborate.
