I think user scripts, as they become more popular and capable, will
exert positive pressure that clueful web developers will respond to in
the form of more obvious URL and DOM structures.

But there are legions of coders who get paid to just get something
online, and these will never create hackable sites for their users.

80/20 rule, except it may be more like 95/5 in this case.
