Just one brief note so there are no misunderstandings:

Absolutely. ERP to be viable *must* be a platform. The questions I
think we have been debating is whether it makes sense to make all
aspects of that platform usable over HTTP.
To the extent there is any disagreement, it is narrow. I doubt anyone
here believes that we shouldn't be shooting for LedgerSMB as a
platform of which the web application is little more than a sample of
what it can do. To the extent there is any disagreement left, it is
*how* to go about creating a great platform, not if.
