The Missing IN Operator – OGC Filter Standards

It sounds incredible, but it’s true: OGC Filter Encoding in it’s current version 1.1 lacks an IN operator [1]. Combining multiple PropertyIsEqualTo using ORs performs really badly both on Arcgis Server [2] and Geoserver [3]. That calls for the implementation of this standard-exceeding IN operator. Maybe PropertyIsIn?
