Yet again, I'm puzzled.

I thought this group was focused on polyfills and extending the browser 
using the tools available within it.  From my perspective, the very 
separation of concerns this derides as a dead horse is what makes 
polyfills and browser extensions possible without infinite tangles.

Based on this message, though, it seems like the "next web" perspective 
is something much more severe, leaning toward throwing over the things 
that have worked in the past in favor of rapid application development.

Is that really the purpose of this group?
