Postscript, even without the procedural bits hacked out, doesn't really have an interaction model. So it would have to be substantially replaced anyway in order to be useful, and then there's still the fact that it's a stack language, which is an obscure class of language.
I suspect that xhtml, xforms, and a spreadsheet-style expression language would apply better to the actual useful applications, but people persist in going for Turing-complete solutions instead of more targetted ones.
