Template coders very heavily use transclusion as "part of the hidden logic" of
templates - there are things that are far cheaper and easier to do with a
transclusion than without (for instance, parameter validation and
preprocessing, when the validated/preprocessed parameters are used in more than
just one or two places in the template proper). A lot of the stuff
transclusions are used for could be simplified, or replaced outright, if we
were able to create and store variables, but that's a different bug report (bug
7865, specifically).
