Exactly.  You've just described the "components" aspect of this idea, which was left 
out of the
Paul's original post.  A component is just a tag marked with a special attribute that 
names it (and
its path, if it has been saved).  It can contain other components, and can have 
"slots" -- subtags
whose contents are not part of the component.  There is also the concept of "modes", 
which allows
you to have different versions of a template for different system states (shopping 
cart empty vs.
non-empty) that radically affect presentation.

Yep :-)
