	In his seminars, Chris Date says that the SQL community now believes
that trying to make SQL a "data sublanguage" that was not a complete
language in itself was a mistake. I believe this does have implications for
designers of other niche languages, such as transformation sublanguages. If
we accept this wisdom, our concern should be that all niche languages on the
web use the same scripting component, i.e. VRMLscript=XSLscript=ECMAscript.
