JSONiq: The JSON Query Language

From the webpage:

JSONiq extends XQuery, a mature W3C standard, with native JSON support. Like XQuery and SQL, JSONiq is declarative: Expressions can nest with full composability.

Project, Filter, Join, Group… Like SQL, JSONiq can do all that. And it has many more features inherited from XQuery. JSONiq also inherits all XQuery builtin functions: date times, string manipulation, regular expressions, and more.

JSOniq is an expressive and highly optimizable language to query and update NoSQL stores. It enables developers to leverage the same productive high-level language across a variety of NoSQL products.

This came in over the nosql-discuss mailing list a day or so ago.

Sounds promising. Any early comments?
