> Why is there no ORM that works like this?

Because no one wants to write a SQL fragment parser. You would have write a parser that:

a) Could be started at an arbitrary place in a query and figure out what it needed to do.

b) Would be SQL-dialect aware. (Maybe -- it might be possible to skip this.)

Were it not for (a), I'd imagine you could quickly build this by using some kind of debug feature of the database -- sending it a query to parse and getting back a parse tree.
