Yes, the politics. Avoid being too good, or users wont be able to use the "enterprise"
databases you are supposed to sell them one day ;-)
I strongly hope we wont take THAT road...
You don't need to be "nonstandard" to get ahead of most "enterprise" databases - simple full
implementation of SQL99 will do ;) Most of them never got past the entry-level of SQL92,
and went their own way from there, ignoring any standards in the intent of locking customers
in...

Speaking of which, I would really like the SQL99 datatypes, like, yes, BOOLEAN!

I found the spec here (ansi-iso-9075-*-1999.pdf):
