Or rather, it is not just technically guided.  Complexity has initial costs
and recurring costs -- learning curves, building apps on top of XML,
time-to-market, revisiting old problems, technical support, software
maintainability, etc.

There are technical issues as well, but nothing that can't be overcome with
extra clock cycles and memory chips (translating to non-recurring costs).
