Sorry for the super late response.

The reason for their failures should be diagnosed.

POWDER is a separate protocol which has to be implemented on web servers,
so has all kinds of complications.

Then this's not a part of a popular standard.

These maybe the reasons why they're not popular, people don't expect much
from a separate protocols, but HTML is a BIG thing.
