   Re: [xml-dev] W3C's five new XQuery/Xpath2 working drafts - Stil l miss

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I remember seeing a comment by Michael Rys in this group.  He said 
something like - the group ran out of bandwidth to deal with the 
UPDATE.semantics at this time and will visit it later.  My question is 
this - Is it better to let the XQuery get to recommendation without 
UPDATE now and then deal with it later? or Is it better to delay this 
and have a more complete XQuery recommendation a few months later?
I do not know the answer to this yet but would like to hear other 
opinions.  As Mike points out, if there are enough people on the side of 
deciding on UPDATE now, there maybe time to deal with this.
