Here's a historical note on this decision. At the time that
standard_html_* were introducted, DTML was used soley for creating
templates to display content in Python objects. The expansion for
DTML is Document *Template* Markup Language. The mistake was 
not introducing components, but introducing the use of DTML
as content.
