I think this simple remark from Rick is, indeed, a ==very strong== one,
which is all about what I consider an intrinsic design flaw/issue of today's
Web (that MUST be properly addressed in future's SW, I hope).
This design flaw, by its very nature, already led to a very big number (*)
+ deployment and interoperability issues (well, I guess, these are not that
critical in the long term, given the pace smart
men/communities/consortiums/standard bodies/corporations - in that order
;=] - can invent better ways to have machines do "the thing")
+ security issues (these being ==utterly critical== in the long term, for
the same reasons - especially when there are chances for them to be "reused"
on purpose of practising power, politics, etc)
(*) given the amazing context of facts that ... our Web's history is very
short - compared to other well-known human activities of global impact -
education, science, commerce, politics, etc - over time
