It's a mixture of things.  On the one hand, SQL is woefully limited 
(and, in a number of respects, simply broken).  But you've also got the 
problem that none of the major database vendors (starting with IBM) have 
fully implemented the relational model.  While you certainly can't fault 
the model (it's just logic, after all), you can blame the implementation.
