For the record: my focus is on having a template language for cocoon 
that is as powerful as XSP but avoids all the problems.

Also, I think that XHTML markup offers the best possible usecase of how 
that template language should work.

Also, I think that being friendly to existing authoring tools is not 
only a plus but a very interesting usecase that makes us think about the 
hows and whys on the syntaxes and models that we use.

for example, Daniel proposed numbered-attributes to solve the problem of 
loop nesting. Well, I think that's a problem we don't have, because it's 
very unlikely that somebody will nest loops without nesting elements!

Dealing with strict constrains is also a very good exercise of design 
because it forces you to think rather than just work by symmetry.
