Do you really think RIA is going to be so big?

When I surf using my Handspring Treo mobile, I really appreciate 
websites that are lean and technically elegant and display on my screen. 
I can't even run javascript, so any RIAs are no-go for my mobile.

I can't see javascript being implemented on this type of browser for a 
long time either.

Plus there is always the issue that user interaction design is still in 
its infancy, and many people and companies and websites haven't grasped 
the basics of it for simple websites, let alone RIAs.

Anyway I cant see how RIAs in browsers are going to make any difference 
to server-side architecture. They still have to deal with HTTP even if 
they hide it from the user.

All pure hypothesising of course.
