That's motherhood and apple pie. You would have a hard time finding 
anyone who would claim that there is one true design methodology.

What _I_ would claim is that when you build an information system (like 
the Web) you must choose a set of principles that will hold common for 
all objects in that system. COM has such a set of principles. Java has 
such a set. The TAG's job is to define those principles for the Web. If 
you deny them the right to exclude you deny them the ability to succeed.
