I am no squeak/pharo/cuis master,

but in my opinion the best approach is still "objects as servers"
  - no matter what html6 will be able to do, it won't be enough.

however html5+js means we can leverage ajax - and provide illusion
of objects as servers - and that's cool.


1. yes
2. not sure, I'd rather spend energy on something different.
