On the other hand, Lightspeed seems like an interesting architecture regardless of the particular language specification being used. I could imagine having Lightspeed in place being valuable in making W3C standards more real. That is, if Lightspeed ends up efficient, open-source, and portable, it should be relatively straightforward to start thinking about replacing front ends from it to make something that does Javascript, HTML5 Canvas, and DOM instead of Flash, and then proposals for accelerated graphics in Canvas can come with making Lightspeed implement them, which would avoid the issue that the W3C often has where they work out a spec and some parts of it never get implemented by anyone.
