100% argee.
The main thing for me is UI have to be divided from functionality. So, 
one who need human-less operation (cron-based lynx or HTTP modules or 
other not-fully-browsers-things) would be able to call some API (say, 
Bugzilla-client CPAN module?) to do their stuff. With HTML UI left to 
most of people with modern browsers.
