I am not aware of anything either :) I think it is funny that I get accused of being too theoretical in some of the newsgroups when my (few) academic publications were in Software Engineering and not very important at all.
I have always written for the working SQL guys or consulted for companies developing SQL products. I did find out that some of the tricks I popularized in SMARTIES were optimized for in several products, as a direct result of the development teams using the book for test suites.
