TEI is just an XML format. However, it's a very, very old XML format 
(its roots are actually in SGML). Consequently, people expect to use it 
in extremely varied ways.

I'd say the dispatcher is ideal as it allows content to be moved from 
one place to another within the TEI document in order to accommodate for 
strange requirements placed on the system by downstream XSL.

Having said that, coding it directly in the TEI plugin is quicker and 
easier and could always be factored out into the dispatcher if it 
actually needs to be.
