For the record, we've made no progress because I explicitly wasn't going 
to do it until 2010. If either Microsoft or Mozilla (or ideally both) are 
interested in implementing this after all, I would be quite willing to 
write the spec for SQL to the same level of detail as HTML5.

In the absence of interest in the matter, however, I'm happy to let the 
spec stand without a definition of the SQL dialect beyond just "use 
sqlite". It just means we can't progress the spec past CR.
