I wonder therefore how much further we're going to go down the whole "let's support JS everywhere" route before we finally realise what an awful mistake the whole thing's been and how we really need to slowly migrate away to better designed technologies. Yes, HTML and CSS are fine for simple web pages. But if you want to go down the whole one-page-app route and actually treat the browser as a real programming environment, they're absolutely not fit for purpose.
Once that's been solved, I wonder if anyone will think JS should live on, eg in Gnome Shell support. Are there actually technical reasons to prefer JS over, say, lua, or even LISP (see StumpWM for example).
