Jens Oliver,

Overall, I very much agree with everything you wrote. In particular:
implementations become heavier, slower, and more error-prone, and code 
itself becomes more convoluted and complicated, for many web developers 
chase the latest and scramble for shortcuts, while few take the time to 
review and optimize techniques.

jQuery and Bootstrap are definitely not the solution. To me, jQuery and 
Bootstrap are the problem.
