That's an odd twist. It's true that doctors blame everything on weight if you're overweight. No chance for an accurate diagnosis when there's low-hanging fruit to jump at. But that's another thing entirely from avoiding a doctor who might suggest there's some benefit and that there are fewer health problems with being lighter.

And nobody even tried using XMLHttpRequest for anything non-XML until a while later (because who wants to parse XML client-side?). It never made sense that it was a generic caller, but had XML in the name, which is one thing that scared off a lot of would-be early adopters. It still didn't matter too much until it was supported outside of IE.
