SPARQL working group - call for suggested features

The SPARQL Working Group[1] has started up and is beginning its work by 
gathering potential features to extend the SPARQL language, protocol, 
results format, and/or general SPARQL landscape.

We invite all members of the community to suggest features/extensions to 
SPARQL that you find most important. To contribute, please do the following:

1) Check to make 
sure your suggestion has not already been recorded.

2) Send email to with your suggestion, 
including this information:

  + A description of the feature
  + An example of the feature in action (e.g. sample syntax, sample HTTP 
requests, sample XML documents, ...)
  + Information on existing implementations of the feature
  + Motivating use cases for the feature (i.e. why do you find it 

Please note that due to time and resource constraints, the SPARQL 
Working Group expects to accept for further work only a small fraction 
of the total number of features considered. The Working Group does not 
expect to respond directly to all submitted feature suggestions.

The Working Group is pursuing an aggressive schedule. Please submit 
suggestions by Tuesday, March 10, 2009.
