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.
