I also, couldn't agree more. I tend to hide my modifications as new document classes ... but front-matter should be finger painted. After that, though, I don't want to see or think about ERT.

This is a minority opinion and a lot don't subscribe to it, but in my
opinion you save time by fingerpainting your front matter. In other
words, use embedded LaTeX, historically called ERT in the LyX
community, to insert your logo and employer and line them up exactly
how you want them and page break where you want and make fonts
exactly how you want them to look.

I'm not sure that this is minority.. At least I subscribe to it: if in
need for anything fancy, first page should be pure LaTeX. All below
should (mostly) be LyX.
