How can a webapp bakeoff not be about the HTML? This is beginning to 
sound a little "ivory tower" to me.

In fact, part of the challenge should be that the application works in 
any recent browser on any recent platform, including a text and 
read-aloud browsers. Who cares how "good" the backend is if it can't 
produce something that will survive in the real world?

In a real bakeoff, contestants get judged on the quality of their cake, 
not the oven they used to bake it. :)
