Fair enough, but that trail takes us off into permathread land, and I don't 
want to go there.   I was wondering specifically about late binding.

Ooooohhhh, the declarative-procedural controversy, the mother of 
permathreads :-)  I'll stay out of that too.  But seriously, I agree with 
Eliotte Harold's suggestion that someone (us collectively?) try to 
characterize the features that distinguish *technically* successful large- 
scale sites from those that are hard to use, fragile, unreliable, etc.  It 
would be very interesting if Fielding's notion of "sites that don't [expletive deleted]" 
is empirically supportable as well as theoretically elegant.
