I'd just put the http://wiscorp.com/SQLStandards.html URL in, as it
contains several references in varying levels of detail.

We claim SQL standard compliance, so since those are part of SQL:2003,
we probably ought to mention them.  SQL/PSM is a programming language
that lives inside the database, and DB2 and MySQL have it.  SQL/MED
lets people talk to other data stores.  SQL/OLB appears to be derived
from equel, which we have as ecpg.  SQL/Schemata contains the
information schema.  SQL/JRT appears to bear some similarity to
PL/Java and PL/J.
