Re: new version of fed query

I added a section on BINDINGS to rq25:

For Federated query there is a top level section,

14 Basic Federated Query

This document incorporates the syntax for SPARQL federation extensions.

This feature is defined in the document SPARQL 1.1 Federation Extensions 


While this feels a bit odd, on balance, it seems better than just 
placing a sentence or two in the introduction or some other overall 
text. Discussion of optionality can go in the federated query document

Formal definition for BINDINGS also incorporated.  This is done during 
translation from the abstract syntax to the algebra; the new result is 
that there are no new algebra operators.

Carlos - we'll need to sync the docs up now that BINDINGS is in the 
query doc.  Let me know of anything I need to do to rq25.

That's a lot to put in rq25 and big enough to be it's own document.  Suggestion: keep it in the main grammar, have a reference from the query document to federated query in the intro and note in the grammar section it includes the grammar rules needed.
