Because peak.web's "tier 1" functionality doesn't include any form 
processing, authentication, etc.  The current functionality is designed to 
support only "database publishing" applications that create essentially 
static sites from dynamic data.  I'm sure we'll take on the shootout 
eventually, as it doesn't require much of what's in tier 2: just 
authentication and forms.
