comment Is cloud computing just a way of renting resources?
When an org is its own provider, the provider wing of the org incurs capital expenditures to build the cloud service. However, usage of the cloud service requires no capital expenditure. Orgs often do internal billing, where if division A wants services from division B, division A pays division B for it internally. The phrase "billed like a utility" applies to these orgs. Orgs which provide free cloud services to user divisions do not bill, so that item applies but is overridden by "services which are free").

comment Should the build drive your tags or should the tags drive the build?
Not only should backward-incompatible be classed as "major change", such changes should be forced by versioning policy to be batched together into a painful single major upgrade rather than strung through a long and painful sequence of minor upgrades. Semantic versioning does this.

comment Would using AJAX extensively improve server performance?
That is how front-end guys and designers use the term "render". Not how app-server programmers use the term "render". See, e.g., the prevalent use of rendering views, rendering text or raw bytes, etc, in Rails.

comment Would using AJAX extensively improve server performance?
AJAX would cause more requests than doing the same thing without AJAX in cases like: your main layout has "holes" but is delivered with those holes to the browser, and those holes are "filled" using AJAX. See e.g. Facebook.

Starting from view/template, combining it with variables, and rendering raw HTML from it.

This has the potential to cause BIG PROBLEMS for the unfortunate poor soul who has to deal with the potential for lawsuits that your advice caused.
