Actually, you lose more. 
1. words in text lines are ignored during a spell check. 
2. this method screws up translation, especially when you use CAT.
Instead of one sentence, the CAT will see two sentences and one word,
with no apparent connection between the three. 
3. If you ever change your template, you're screwed: all those words in
text lines will have to be manually reformatted.
