The XQL spec is one of the candidates submitted to the XML Query
Language WG (another is XML-QL).  The members of the WG have been very
tight-lipped about what they're doing, so it's pretty difficult (or
impossible) for those not on the inside to make any project plans in
this area with any real confidence that they'll end up with designs that
are compatible with the adopted recommendation.

Unfortunately, this secrecy mindset appears to have bled over into the
work on XQL itself.  I haven't succeeded in getting any responses to
emails sent over the past months to the XQL mailing list or its members
(about questions such as: is there no more recent version of the XQL
draft than the one from last August?).
