That's exactly my point. It's seems the task now with Web UI is adapting to screen sizes and capabilities to build complex layouts of components that IMHO HTML/CSS is fundamentally not suited for. The leap from using SVG just for simple elements that scale to entire UIs that scale and shift their layouts doesn't seem to far fetched to me...Oracle, Google, Adobe, Microsoft all use(d) XML with a schema for their layout engines and yet the Web won't (cant?) While it has in its grasp an XML as well?
