A correction here - my contribution to XQuery was entirely as part of 
the "smoothing out" effort - my role was as bug-fixer. The original 
ideas can be largely attributed to Jonathan Robie, Don Chamberlin, and 
Dana Florescu.

XQuery was very much a committee effort. The main reason it took so long 
was that there were too many good people with creative ideas 
participating in the process. That the final result had some technical 
coherence can be largely attributed, in my view, to the arbitration 
skills of Don Chamberlin, Mary Fernandez, and Paul Cotton.
