DSXL: Using SQL Query as the Source

Whilst in DSXL we can create "Remote Data Sources" and create "Custom Data Sources", and then reference tables within those data sources as "Data Sets", the capability where user is being able to specify a SQL query as a Remote data set is really needed.. Some of tables customer is using are huge and therefore users don't want to have to pull all the tables to DSX before performing joins and then discarding big chunks of the data that they have queried.. What is really needed is SQL Query as the Source.
