    Is this a final list of v2 or we are still working on it? I have one proposal to add to
ORC v2, which is what I call "clustered index". Basically the writer can specify a sorting
property on one or more columns, then we create an index section in ORC file with keys being
the column(s) value and the value is the row number. To reduce the size of index, each row
group has one entry in the clustered index. This will enable new range scan pattern when reader
provides upper bound and lower bound of column(s) values. 
    I can write up a detailed proposal for this.
