FWIW, I find it very irritating to work with frameworks that are so "agnostic" that I have to do the hard work of integrating stuff myself. I've never once written a web app that didn't need templating, because I've never written one that only responds with text/plain and writing HTML with print or string manipulation is just lame. Template language pluggability is a good design principle, but anyone who doesn't have a strong predisposition towards a particular language is going to stick with the default and be grateful to not have to worry about finding the right plugin and configuring it correctly. It also makes documentation harder to write and follow when these things have to be explained as variables.
