C'mon, you're taking it too literally/seriously. The idea is obviously to not force-fit a language just because you're familiar with it - whether it's a tool, material, or whatever. Unfortunately though, asking to "use the right tool" is just as useless/generic as asking to "eat right." The devil is in the details, and you always need to consider a lot of factors in making the decision.
GWT lacks the WYSIWYG tools and over that it uses XML, thats adding insult to injury.
Lets hope they discard XML in version 3 and make it developer friendly.
The only fallacy here is a logical one. This is just a long-winded article taking issue with the use of 'tool' for a programming language, where the author prefers 'material', and cannot demonstrate, without using awful analogies, why this is even a problem.
