Agreed. In my earlier post I should have used the term
"extra-SQL-standard functionality" instead of "non-standard
functionality". I am certainly not advocating any implementation
contrary to the SQL standard, rather functionality that is outside the
standard. Some of that is already standardized elsewhere eg Open GIS
Consortium "Simple Features for SQL". My concern is facilitation of
innovation. As far as data types go I think SQL99 User Defined Types
should do that.
