Oracle 11g SQL: Named & Mixed Notation for PL/SQL in SQL Statements

In programming language theory, positional notation refers to matching the order of formal parameters and actual parameters.  Whereas named notation refers to matching the formal parameters and actual parameters explicitly usually (not necessarily) by some operator (in PL/SQL this operator is =>). Finally mixed notation refers using both together as a single notation.

Although there was no restriction on using any of those notations within PL/SQL blocks, prior to 11g named & mixed notations for PL/SQL subroutines were not allowed in SQL statements (Code Piece 1 and Code Piece 2). This is one of the most restrictive issues about SQL for developers. Luckily 11g solves that issue and now it is allowed to use named and mixed notations also in SQL statements.
