Absolutely!  It certainly strikes me as being too early to try to build
the "one web framework/API" in Haskell.

I share some reservations about WAI.  It's certainly better than using
lazy I/O for high-volume web servers, but the enumerator/iteratee stuff
is far less obvious than lazy I/O as an abstraction.  Let's spend some
more time playing before building up pressure to rewrite web code using
WAI.  There's just no way we can know what other ideas people will come
up with in the next few months or years.
