My issues with it are 1) I already see enough dumb queries (and queries in indefinitely-long loops...) from backend devs, how will the frontend devs have a prayer of writing performant queries with so much distance from the underlying datastore(s)?, and 2) exposing a highly flexible query language to the frontend, given the variety and complexity of GraphQL libraries and the complexity of implementing GraphQL server-side if you don't just use something that does it automagically for you, sets off my spidey-sense "there will be bad security problems here, sooner or later, guaranteed" warnings.
