The web succeeded based on a standard set of
generic codes passed among communicating parties
via a standard protocol all implemented over
a code library made freely available from
the originators of that code.
There isn't a hint of anarchy in that.

How much anarchy can your systems tolerate?
I'd suggest that anarchy is a lot of why the Web succeeded and previous
approaches failed. Seems to be a matter of balancing structure and chaos,
not banishing disagreements.
