This method of prototyping is my real world ;)  And I agree this would
be needed to do a proper "bake off".

I'll say here it should use css and even some x/dhtml.  These are often
parts of new sites and when I look at frameworks it's important to me to
see how well they can intergrate with x/dhtml and css.  Having a plain
html 4.0 design wouldn't really be important either; as time goes on 4.0
will matter less and less so the bake off should be forawrd looking,
