It certainly does not. It wasn't intended to. My point was merely that
there is no real relationship between the need to be able to make form
elements and other interactive elements (hyperlinks, collapsable trees)
and the need to be able to make modifications to a document through a
query language. They are both good ideas -- they are just not
necessarily related ideas. We already have forms, and it doesn't require
an updatable SDQL.
