Any idea why they decided to use string-based queries for GraphQL?

I feel something that can be composed programmatically without having to deal with string concatenation like Falcor's queries or the Datomic Pull syntax proposed in Om Next [1] could be more flexible and robust. I may be missing something.

You can always use JS/ES6 string templates (using Babel or Traceur).
