So, let's say I want an application that plays music and shows it being 
played, synchronized with an animation of the musical score.

I would have said the most appropriate architecture for that is for the 
server to serve MusicXML, and for a client-side application to do both 
the aural rendition and the animated display.

You're saying I "really shouldn't" be doing that. I don't understand 
why. How would you do it?

(Let's remember that MathML and SVG are only in the approved list of 
vocabularies because their advocates made a lot of noise about it for 
many years, and because people found ways to deliver content in these 
vocabularies before they got the seal of approval of the browser vendors.)
