This criticism is misplaced. The underlying technologies do not have a
notion of "private" versus "public" resource; web browsers sit on the
boundary between "private" and "public", but they cannot tell what ca-
tegory a given resource belongs to. Browser vendors realize that making
private things public is bad, just as having no untested and unreviewed
features someone made up on the spot in the next release is bad, so we
end up with all sorts of nonsense in the euphemistic "Web Platform".
