    Why? Because you don't consider programs that use 3D graphics are 
applications? If a motorcycle manufacturer creates an app that lets you 
order a custom bike, and it displays the bike in 3D as you change 
various options for the order, is that not a valid web application? 
Remember, people used to think that 2D graphics were only for games. In 
an age where every computer ships with 3D graphics acceleration 
built-in, why would we limit web applications to 2D?
