As the primary owner of the IBM i SQL BNF, I would be interested in
hearing what you are looking for in the statement text. If it is
something that might be generally useful (like a list of table names), I
might be able to create a service that uses the IBM i parser to return
these pieces of information.

How about just running an SQL PREPARE on that statement, to see if
DB2 finds any errors?

I'm trying to parse out various pieces of information about the SQL
statements in question ... not just determine if they are valid.
