I agree. Specifically from the perspective of large internal corporate nets
relying on Web technology, diverging "improvements" gives a very different
set of +/- then people thinking of external nets. Internally there's
potentially much more need for a standard set of markup, since there's also
more emphasis on global support. It would be nice to run well tamed
(if we can believe there's such a beast) robots that can catch problems and
suggest solutions within a (seemingly) limited set of pages, while giving
users the flexibility to do what they want/need within the constraints
of the language. It also provides some support capability from the
of understanding particular problems and limitations of browsers when
questions come up.
