Typically database driven, multi-tiered full fledged websites (retail sites
that keep customer history are a good & common example).

Not typically dHTML but rather all of the code created, which is typically
so interwoven and frail that an unfinished or now-broken-due-to-reason-x

10 million also goes towards advertising, rent for all the people you have,
20-30% extra for management and dealing with a project that large, 3rd party
software, etc etc etc...
