While I share your beliefs in the value of XQuery to users, I'm quite happy
for Microsoft to leave the market to third parties ;-)

Subject: [xquery-talk] Help Support XQuery in the Microsoft .NET

Dear XQuery-Talk,


Microsoft announced that they are dropping XQuery from their next release of
the .NET Framework, 2.0 (Whidbey). Since Microsoft ships .NET Framework only
every 3 or so years, cutting XQuery from Whidbey means that the next
opportunity for XQuery to find its way into .NET Framework won't be until
around 2009, and even then it's far from a sure thing. That's why it's so
important that the community of XQuery developers makes XQuery a priority
for Microsoft.


Stylus Studio believes that XQuery's has broader applicability then just an
XML querying language but is also an important mid-tier data integration and
Web service enabling technology, and therefore should not be dropped from
the Microsoft .NET 2.0 Framework. Stylus Studio is asking for any developer
who shares this vision and to sign the petition online at:
