The reaction comes from years of watching UI centric people, who have a
different design goal, use dao code poorly; and then watching dao type
people use UI code poorly.

I guess I view the layering as inevitable.  Even if it is as simple as
moving a tag, I am not sure I want anyone to have that choice.

I do use layers, when it makes sense.  It's just a matter of taste, I
guess.  Some folks like to stick with their paradigm no matter what.
I guess I've just become a bit more flexible when it turns out to save
me some code (like having pass-through methods just to have them).  If
I need to introduce some logic in between my view/data layers later, I
can easily do so.  Using services too much is a symptom of an "anemic"
domain model.
