For promoting best practices, there is often a need of *immediate*  
Return On Investment. All browsers should be delivered in two versions  
(We are reaching this little by little):
	* Developer
	* Public
The Developer version would spot some missing things in the *UI*  
(visibility/proximity = action).

Another (missed?) possibility is browsers being real editors. That  
opens a huge horizon of rich interactions. I had the luck to work for  
8 years in a structure where the Web pages could be edited wysiwyg  
without having to switch to another tool (editor), a form, etc. Server  
and client where handling the HTTP PUT.

This, though, need better cooperation and work with server crowds.  
Unfortunately, I do not see a lot of love between people from Apache  
and IIS working on the development of HTML *and* HTTP together.
