OK, I think we pretty much agree. I was just a bit stuck on a case
where appeals to "The Web Architecture" hindered progress (in the
majority view, anyway).
The Web (whatever it "is"!) came about through a strange mix of
thoughtful design, industry politics, and evolution. I like the
image of separating the "calculus" from the "alchemy," and to do that
we analyze the Web both analytically and pragmatically.
