Fair enough, but that trail takes us off into permathread land, and I don't
want to go there. I was wondering specifically about late binding.

Ooooohhhh, the declarative-procedural controversy, the mother of
permathreads :-) I'll stay out of that too. But seriously, I agree with
Eliotte Harold's suggestion that someone (us collectively?) try to
characterize the features that distinguish *technically* successful large-
scale sites from those that are hard to use, fragile, unreliable, etc. It
would be very interesting if Fielding's notion of "sites that don't suck"
is empirically supportable as well as theoretically elegant.
