Because it isn't practiced.  It is espoused.  Again, 
if HTML is the exemplar, it isn't 100%.  It is mixed. 
All of the examples so far are mixed.

AKA, trolling?  Nope. I'm questioning assumptions 
and design principles that leave the work to 
others.  Structured vs unstructured only has 
clarity at the extremes.

Survival is being the middle gazelle and profit 
is being the third penguin.
