How is it that <dtml-sqlgroup> and <dtml-sqltest> do not encourage good SQL 

From my experience these commands allow developers to save countless hours 
creating very error-prone and hard-to-debug procedures for assembling SQL. 
<dtml-sqlgroup> and <dtml-sqltest> on the other hand change this procedural 
chore to high level "declarative"-like programming.

I can't see how this is bad, but I am always eager to learn and if anyone can 
point me to articles explaining why these very useful commands should be 
dropped, I will look deeper into it.
