I did hope the general point would resonate with non-mobile devs, too. Do keep in mind that Flutter trying to find its way into web development and Kotlin has been able to output JavaScript since well before it output native code. Mobile and web development are converging and each tool has it's pros and cons (including Wasm which will run on non-web platforms, too). As you correctly noticed, my worry is we'll put too much focus on "look how easy it is to build something for all platforms" and forget about the user's experience.

You make some great points about the size, the tooling like tree-shaking steps, and how it interacts with other things you already have. Thank you!
