The aims of this group are, yes focused on advocating and discussing
polyfills and prollyfills - and advocacy that enables this, for significant
reasons and in ways described on extensiblewebmanifesto.org.  Actually, i
would say the majority of work is applying this advocacy i.

 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.
