I certainly appreciate the point of view your expressing, as well as the 
recommendations on good programming practice.  However, I'm learning 
from experience on current zope.org, which has a rather byzantine 
collection of "convenience" programming that make deciphering the output 
of certain pages into a detective's job.

The matter under question will involve fewer than ten sections that are 
redundant in perhaps one location.  The decrease of complexity is worth 
it compared to the cost from explicitness.

If later it proves to be a problem that needs help through programming, 
we'll address it.
