Not to be a killjoy:  I hope it is easier to 
dig through than the Mosaic code was. :-)
In the long run, this may be the way that a 
standard client framework for the Internet emerges 
now that all the players understand exactly 
how hard that is given the ever mutating 
set of language types and protocols it has to support. 

So one more wild thought:  it will soon 
be very necessary to revisit all of the 
concepts of HyTime and ask ourselves if 
it is possible to build within XML, a true 
language-independent framework for 
hypermedia systems.  I think we are 
about ready for a standard color hyper-TV.
