Because from the description in the original post, it sounds like
he is building core functionality for the site utilizing client-
side scripting.  Being a standards advocate, I think this is bad.
If you can't do something any other way than on the client-side,
then you should rethink your strategy as to offer equal access to 
any client, not relying on its capabilities or lack thereof.
