XQuery already has a large user community that covers both the data side of xml as well as the document centric side of the XML. It is becoming the defacto standard for querying XML repositories and data bases, and is a good complement to other XML technologies like XSL. As more traditional database add support for XML databases having a good base set of XQuery tools to use and extend will become increasing important.
