cybertown browser
There is one additional point, and that is, the generic 
client has to handle multiple languages which of course 
web browsers do.  I do wonder what the overhead of that 
is, but given the managed code idea, it can't be horrific. 
The reason I bring it up is that one advantage of say, 
VFP, is the Fox language itself.  It is easy to work 
in a relational system given the commands available. 
Productivity is part of the equation here.  I doubt 
that I would want to spend a lot of time designing 
forms first in SVG, then writing generic scripts to 
do the job of a compiled app language.

Again, I like SVG.  I am also rooting for X3D.  The 
most compelling experience I've had on the web was 
the Cybertown concerts.  Real time 3D is something 
mysteriously evocative because after just a bit 
of experience, it really does become like 
being there, warts and all. So a forms-based system 
may be the day gig bread and butter, but at night, 
avatars rule.  The future may be something a lot 
more different than say, XForms or XDocs will support. 
But then, as I said, nothing is inevitable.
