When looking at what Web-Application Developers need to create better
web-applications, surely looking at case studies of example
web-applications is highly relevant to the discussion?    I don't
create web-applications, I create intranet applications using
web-technologies, so I can't produce mine as an example, using things
like GMail seems to be a good way of approaching it.

Where else are you looking at for examples of web-applications, the
techniques used and the problems faced by developers?

It's my conclusion from seeing the available web-applications today,
that the web document semantics of HTML are almost completely useless
and un-used, what's needed is application level semantics.
