@craigmaloney wholeheartedly disagree. Standardization doesn't mean ossification, but it often does. The standard library needs to define things everyone shares, like streams. Otherwise there's pain. For most other things though it's better to encourage userland diversity.
It's been neat to watch PWAs go from this weird thing the Chrome team was pushing, to a handful of "hello world" apps, to some impressive apps for emerging markets like Flipkart and Konga, to a mainstream thing that all browsers are embracing and big players like Twitter and Instagram are building for as well.
BTW fun fact: every Mastodon instance is its own PWA. 😁
