Dietzler's Law for Access:
Every Access project will eventually fail because, while 80% of what the user wants is fast and easy to create, and the next 10% is possible with difficulty, ultimately the last 10% is impossible because you can't get far enough underneath the built-in abstractions, and users always want 100% of what they want.
I think this law applies to build systems and javascript frameworks as well, as I outline in my devblog post about it.
