It's impossible. Either you have application, or you have document.
Websites of today want to be applications with precise visual
representation. Website's design can blow up if you even change the font

There should be separate web for applications (with something more
appropriate than HTML/CSS/JS). There should be also separate web for
documents (with something more appropriate than HTML/CSS/JS).

I don't see any worldwide hope soon. XML+XLST certainly is not one.
There is too much push for more brands and APIs, than for simple
interaction between programs.
