These two are happening

This one's stalled because no two replication solutions appear to need
anything in the core.  Instead, lots of things are going on outside
the core in the clustering/replication/HA arena.

Other things coming down the pike are:

* SQL/XML support per SQL:2003
* SQL/PSM support per SQL:2003

Hrm.  While two things isn't much of a pattern, it's suggestive.

Personally, I'd like to see MERGE, windowing functions, and better
integration of (INSERT|UPDATE|DELETE) ... RETURNING.

Cheers,
D (SQL/MED, anybody?)
