Some relevant bits of OQL you seem to have overlooked are:
- Every class can have an extent and queries can start here
- Indices can be declared and automatically maintained
- Queries are declarative
- Query optimization exploits indices and object structure

So I'm having a hard time with the basis for some of your points. Could
you  clarify which of the above items fall short?
