I don't think you get what you want, most of the time in any design, 
except one that's tailored for personal use.

Despite 'flavor of the week' optimizations proposed by various large 
companies over the years, the Internet's architecture and its protocols, 
are true examples of:

	"You can't always get what you want,
	but you get what you need."


IMO, the Internet ought to adopt the Rolling Stones as its official 
motto band. ;-)
