OK, one other issue is whether TMQL should specify the possible error
conditions or whether it should leave everything to the

   TMQL Issue: Error compatibility

   Impact on Language: high

   At the moment, the TMQL standard does not detail the errors which
   can occur during the static/dynamic analysis; and it also does not
   give the errorenous situations a name.

   From a language perspective this is not necessary, but OTOH, it
   impedes compatibility between TMQL processors as one application
   has to expect potentially different sets of exceptions.

   Structured Discussion

      ? Should the TMQL standard name all error situations
        + higher compatibility between TMQL implementation
        - less freedom for implementors
