From a vendor's point of view, if there is a standard 'out there' and the industry believes that a standard is 'good' then it 'is good'
to be compliant with the standard. If one plays in the government arena, these are important. The questions is, does the standard prohibit
one from doing what one wants/needs to do. Like John Hall indicated, I have had no real need to use ANSI specific code, either in Teradata
or other DBMS's I've been involved in. One tends to use the facilities and robustness of a particular DBMS. If you are in the business of
created portable applications, adherence to the standard might be a 'good thing'! Just my thoughts.
