Microsoft join and support GQL
I think it would be a great benefit for Cosmos DB to support the new movement to get to a single Graph Query Language. Microsoft joining this movement might help in rapid evolution and acceptance of such a language.
The time has come to create a single, unified property graph query language.
Different languages for different products help no one. We’ve heard from the graph community that a common query language would be powerful: more developers with transferable expertise; portable queries; solutions that leverage multiple graph options; and less vendor lock-in.
One language, one skill set.
The Property Graph Space Has Grown…a Lot
Property graph technology has a big presence, from Neo4j and SAP HANA to Oracle PGX and Amazon Neptune. An international standard would accelerate the entire graph solution market, to the mutual benefit of all vendors and – more importantly – to all users.
Support for this is not on our roadmap but will mark as unplanned and leave open for future consideration.
Thank you for your suggestion.

Since this question was answered and marked as unplanned, there's been some movement.
The work for making GQL an international standard has started, and there are multiple big actors participating, including Amazon.
With these new things in light, will joining the GQL movement, and adding support for GQL (when the standard is adequately finished) be reconsidered?
