Description:
While preparing for an exam on Relational Databases I noticed that MySQL 5 does not support the ROW (new in SQL:1999, example below), ARRAY, and MULTISET (both new in SQL:2003) type constructors.

  CREATE TABLE customer (id INTEGER,
                                      address ROW (
                                        street VARCHAR (30), ...
                                      )
  );

  SELECT address.street FROM customer WHERE id = 42;

While I personally do not need these type constructors (at least not at the moment), I would still like to see MySQL support, especially since MySQL strives for full SQL:1999 support.
