Just curious if you've looked at Microsoft's LINQ language? It addresses many of the pain points you've mentioned, and would be (in my mind) a good model for the next iteration of the SQL standard.

Yeah, although it's been a while. Something very much like that is what I have in mind, though. My biggest complaint with LINQ is that it appears to be more-or-less another ORM: you're still dealing with objects, instead of datasets. (I never actually used it, though, so could very well be completely off base here.)

But yeah, that is at the very least better than SQL.
