And what's so special about SQL over, say, regular expressions, XML, JSON, YAML, Markdown, ReST, LaTeX, etc? I might want to use the s'' prefix for embedded Scheme code rather than SQL.
Um, regular expressions are not precisely the best example there, since we do have raw strings specifically for regular expressions.
But the rest of the list is still valid. Why is SQL more important than any other language or text format? I don't think it is.
