I agree. 
However, I still think that a mature solution on par with WordPress & co.
would serve as a great catalyst for adoption on the web.

Q: Are you trying to tell me that Haskell is good for web development?
A: Sure, look at the industry-strength XYZ CMS

Q: WordPress does the same
A: Yes, but this had 1% of security vulnerabilities in the last year, and
it runs twice as fast.

Of course the same could be said for any applicative context,
not just web CMSes
(uh, just realized a blog itself could be an Applicative ;)
