Excellent points. If I had some votes I'd rank your score higher. Style without substance is for the most part what we had during the first huge wave of the Web. This second wave of development should emphasize content with an eye for clean, reusable and scalable interfaces. If someone wants a custom widget for their clients the rest of the general user shouldn't be held hostage by ever increasing bloat within the web clients.
