Dunno. Craig?

I still use the html tags because they know about the app resources, but 
I sometimes struggle a bit when I need to extend them and find that I 
can't because they weren't refactored like the request processor was 
(like, say, role processing).

That's because they haven't received the developer attention, which is 
why they're legacy, which is why I have to write custom tags to wrap 
them in to implement functionality you can't add to them without 
basically rewriting them. That's the nature of the beast.

OTOH, we have the power to make them exactly what we need--if we want to 
bring them up to par with the rest of the framework we can!
