Draft Response to ED-1

c.f. http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-dawg-comments/2010Feb/0006.html



Thanks for your comment regarding the SPARQL 1.1 working draft syntax  
for aggregate operations.

The working group did consider an aggregate design similar to the one  
you propose while discussing the various syntax options.

However, the overall opinion of the group was that the familiarity of  
the SQL-style aggregate operations was of a greater benefit than the  
terseness of the syntax.

- Steve Harris, on behalf of the SPARQL WG.
