Web Standards advocates tend to only talk about the front end of web sites and app. They tend to completely ignore the back-end. This bothers me. So I want to reevaluate best practices with regard to these "layers," viewing things more holistically — sort of combining the MVC-ish model back-end web development is heading towards and the front-end oriented layers Web Standards folks talk about. I will quickly outline what I believe to be the real way cutting edge web sites are put together, and then I hope you'll discuss and tell me where I'm wrong.
