I watched the panel on components and modules from the Edge Conference, and the discussion left me unsettled. The questions from the audience were more pugnacious—thanks thesaurus!—and there are still many questions that haven’t been satisfactorily answered.

What’s the story for server-side rendering? Will we be able to progressively enhance? Should developers be responsible for meeting the gold standard?

There was also an attitude that tools could help alleviate some of the audience’s concerns, but a spec that requires tooling to be useful isn’t a very useful spec. An inclusive Web is inclusive for publishers as well as consumers.
