But I am not sure the case is as strong for xquery for json as it is
with xml, though I can definitely see a use for it. Selectively
plucking data from a stream that you do not control or do not want to
control is very appealing and probably useful. But at that point why
not just do the same methods on the native language translation?
One way your search through strings, translate subsections, then
provide those back as native objects. The other you translate it all,
then search against native objects to return subset of native objects.
