Besides what you write ("A web designer is really a designer of media for
consumption") another problem is with the current approach is the overuse of
javascript also makes the content they produce to be harder to index. What's
the use of a cool application if less people find it actually? But it should
have been expected, since in HTML 5 and CSS 3 the visuals have been
developed, and almost nothing about semantics.
