No, I don't think that's a fair characterization at all. The size of the
task is no larger than that tackled by XSLT 1.0, which was produced in 18
months, and which involved at least as much innovation. The problem is a
social one: there are at least five individuals on the XQuery WG who could
have produced a perfectly usable spec two years ago if the other four
individuals had not been present.
