What you are describing there is non-Web uses of HTML, i.e. using the
browser as a thin client for an intranet application.  Is that really
within the scope of HTML standardisation?  If it is, it is in the
special context that it is one of very few frequently used applications
for the users, and you are designing for a specific browser.  Neither
of these should be considered valid for the public internet, or the
World Wide Web.

In my experience, such applications are even more likely to be recent version
IE only than commercial public web applications.
