I would be interested to know if there is a serious opposition to SQL XML extensions in the ANSI committee. For example would the noncense like this

SELECT XMLElement("Product",XMLAttributes(prod_id), XMLAgg( XMLElement("Sales",XMLAttributes(cust_id,time_id), XMLForest(quantity_sold,amount_sold)))) AS result FROM sales_tab s
GROUP BY prod_id;

ever see a day light? Received on Fri Apr 18 2003 - 18:56:01 CEST
