Indeed. i've encountered people discussing Gemini as something
intended to supersede the Web, even though the opening text of

and FAQ 1.4 states:

That said, in terms of FAQ 1.1:

i prefer the latter perspective, as i think the former tends to
encourage people to think of Gemini along the lines of, say, HTTP
1.1 and HTML 3.2.
