probably would work but how would you get the various competing browser
makers to agree to anything. can you imagine Gates sitting down
across the table from Job and Torvalds and trying to come to some
agreement, then include the independent programmers and the big players
like Sun and IBM....  I would love to see that meeting...

don't ever see it happening, and then throw in the control societies that
already try to restrict internet access, they would love something like
that so it would makee restricting access to the internet so much easier.
I'm sure freedom fighters (by whatever name) would love that.

technically it would probably not be that hard.
politically it won't ever happen.
