The point is that the current alternative is far from perfect as well.

I don't find it hard to accept that not everyone is happy to shift
compile time effort to runtime effort, or is willing or even able to
drop his established workflows and tools, even on mobile platforms.

Combined with the insight that the "old" widgets don't cut it in the
animated touch space and there's no resources to maintain two stacks
one might have expected a single, fully compilable stack with optional
script bindings on top as primary goal.
