I think it'd be clearer to have them on the same page, as the semantics
is mostly the same, only the syntax differs.

Oracle mode syntax could be wrapped in something similar to <<product>>
tags, so that it could be hidden when a user isn't interested in it.

Duplicating every related page would introduce the documentation
into the sql_yacc_ora.yy like mess.
