This where we are currently having problems. When a site is more of an 
application then just a publication. Mainly our problems are with 
forms, we would like to use CForms but are finding it difficult to 
integrate with the rest of our architecture (and its a lot of XML). I'm 
sure we will find a way ... eventually. But the point you make is well 
taken and becoming painfully obvious.
