One strain of objection I often hear about the project of making the web more extensible is that it implies travelling further down the JavaScript rabbit hole. The arguments often include: No other successful platform is so limited to a single language (in semantics if not syntax). Better languages exist and, surely, could be hooked up to the HTML DOM instead. JavaScript can’t really describe everything the web platform does, so it’s not the right tool for this archeological excavation.
