That’s a brilliant idea, Pavel. That’s the kind of think that will make or break XQuery and/or JSONiq….

Let me know if I can help with something.

BTW, you are implementing only JSONiq—, right !? (I guess so…)

Given that you have the freedom, could you please make me favor, and “fix” some of the 
grammatical issues with XQuery, hm !?

- make FROM a  synonym for FOR and SELECT for RETURN
- eliminate the need for white spaces around the “-“ sign…

Stuff lie that …

Unless you plan to expand this later on to JSONiq++….(but even then , you can still do the FOR/FROM, etc).

Do you plan to implement JSOUND — the JSON schema  too ?
