Re: WTF

I do take your point, but I think that in this (buzzword-bingo) context, "serverless" means non-stateful applications that can make use of scalable lambda (Azure, et al) functions to perform their task.

That's quite hard to do well, as state ultimately has to be stored somewhere, think cookies on a stateless HTTP session.
