Seriously, I think the name turned people off - and while that seems silly  
it was also a real problem. I'd like to understand what other real  
problems existed in that technology stack, because I have found a lot of

(Feel free to redirect answers to the "public-native-web-apps@w3.org"  
<public-native-web-apps@w3.org> community group, BTW. In fact, I would  
encourage you to do that...)
