I don't have an agenda to push for LINQ, but I don't think that the  
reasons you quote eliminate it as an option  many successful  
standards started off as a single vendor solution and were later  
submitted for consideration by a standards group. I guess what I'm  
saying is: since you don't like the SQL-based approach that is  
currently being explored, and since you have a wealth of research into  
better alternatives, why not look into contributing them?
