Who will do it best, is one issue, but it isn't a 
far fetched notion at all.  SGML editors traditionally 
accessed DTDs to enable administrators to tailor 
tasks to requirements by roles.  This enabled some 
to see that if the definitions were also dynamic, 
either rule-based, query-based, whatever, this kind 
tailoring could be applied more broadly and more 
specifically.  Papers have been written on such 
for at least a decade (enterprise engineering).   
Rendering and interoperation across different platforms were the 
more tangible constraints.  Paper tiger constraints 
such as "thou shalt not do graphics or program 
in markup" were a political but nevertheless very 
real problem.

Now that most of these are non-issues, the universal 
canvas becomes tangible.  It will be interesting to 
see how easily such environments are managed and 
administrated.   Part of the costs that must be 
maintained are the long term configurations.  In 
other words, plug and play may be a lot tougher.

Anyone has any thoughts or comments on a Universal Canvas or think it
will still remain a holy grail.
