Nice. I think that XQuery might really do well as a language for REST
style applications. The whole idea of representing everything as
documents that are passed around goes well with a functional language
where everything evaluates to a document.

On an unrelated note: the article mentions XQJ (at least in the servlet
name) - is there any progress on that group? The last public result is
from 09 Jul, 2004. X-Hive would surely be interested in finding some
common grounds.
