There should be separate stack for pixel-perfect device independent use
and for semantic web (without CSS and JS), but then semantic web would
probably just die...

Even if it would work, I think that web shouldn't be pixel-perfect,
because we could just use some glorified-PDFs. It's utter nonsense
that correct rendering of page is depending on some specific font and
specific font size. It's utter nonsense to not restrict paragraph
length (at 80 characters or something). It's utter nonsense to assume
that everyone is using maximised browser window at 1080p.
