Good analogy, except, as far as I know, the customization of the Driving
Instructor's car is left exclusively to the driving instructor.  There are
no auto manufacturers I know who consciously make automobiles that are
easily and quickly "convertible" to a driver's education car... that it can
be done, yes, that it is the responsibility of the manufacturer, no.

Ditto for web browsers Jonathan...
