I don't like fixed names either.  They can lead to bad design.  That's
why we're still looking for a better solution.

We think alike.  A few of us tried to present this very solution (with a
different spelling) to several people here at DC.  They found it quite
confusing.  I honestly don't know why. :-/

But assuming someone can properly document this without making heads
hurt and without sounding alarms in the minds of OO folks, maybe the
right solution is an optional attribute on the opening tag that
specifies the wrapping template.  If not specified, it would default to

Of course, the name of the default wrapping template could always be
overridden by the document class.  Instances of 'NewsDocument', for
example, might use "standard_news_template".
