Our MASE engine supports fielded search. I'm not sure whether it's done 
with SQL or not, but it probably can't do all of SPARQL 
straightforwardly, if only for denial-of-service reasons... but a smart 
SPARQL client should be able to negotiate with it... given a complex 
sparql query, send a simpler sparql query that MASE can handle, which 
would return a superset of the intended matches. Then the smart SPARQL 
client/proxy could re-run the original sparql query on the intermediate 
results to get the desired results.

The connection between ?subject=sparql style URI queries and SPARQL is 
a postponed DAWG issue. RDF forms and all that. The exact design hasn't 
come to me yet, but my intuition says that there's a useful mapping.
