I've noted this as an issue for discussion (tmql-xml-everywhere).
So far it seems like Robert's argument is technical simplicity (fewer
rules) and Lars's argument is conceptual simplicity (these queries
make no sense).
I'm with Lars on this, but it would be interesting to hear what
The (b) issue seems to have died, although I'm sympathetic to Lars's
point of view on that, too.
