Hi Pat,

Section 2.7.2 - QUERY

The first paragraph describes the QUERY parameter and what it means.

The three paragraphs after that, from "Within the ADQL query .." onward, 
list some rules about how services should treat timestamp, geometric 
types and the coordinate system argument to geometric functions.

If these belong anywhere in TAP, should they be in section 1.2.5 on ADQL 
queries? However it might be better to handle these details about ADQL 
queries in the ADQL specification itself. Could we replace the three 
paragraphs with a generic 'Please refer to the ADQL specification for 
further details about ADQL queries'
