Architecturally, it doesn't always make sense to make HTML the 
outer language layer or have a web browser be the framework.  
http and other transports should be just services available to 
any app.  The document centric/flow object model isn't the 
only way to do this.  Sometimes it makes sense; in other 
cases, it is just baggage.
