And "active content" is what happens when you *intentionally* blur the data/
code distinction.

Unfortunately, it's (a) wildly popular with users and (b) usually horribly done

Unfortunately, "Web 2.0" with its "glue stuff together" approach looks like
it's just going to make things even worse, as clueless developers wedge stuff
together with dangerous interactions and synergies....
