] 1) using the wrong technology
] 2) have failed to move out of the first part of the 20th century

Perhaps the technology should be flexible enough
to reduce some duplicated effort.  It seems like
common sense, not needing to be stated, but maybe
by not being stated, it's been missed or dropped
as a goal.

I'd say web standards are not keeping up, not the
people adopting them. (After all, they can convert
their documents using XSLT and other tools to some
other format, etc. because they use web standards,
but maybe they shouldn't have to do so much of that.)
