By far the best post of this thread.

Currently, (X)HTML is mostly used for presentational purposes alone. I 
would agree that in 90% of cases, XML+XLink+CSS2+ECMAScript should be 
used to do what (X)HTML does today.

Mozilla can be thought of as a platform based on this approach. It goes 
even further, as XBL covers the rest 10% of use cases...

Kindest regards,
