If DTML programming / interface design is so simple, and cheap, why not
automate it?  (Strike two for low cost development).

I've been trying to save some time (and my fingers!) by building a RAD
framework, named the WarpFramework [1], which deals with the low level
complexity of properties and how to display / manipulate them in addition
to other common programming tasks.. this could perhaps blend in easily..

Say for example that we could provide the odd designer with the
possibility of simply pushing widgets and displays (generated
automatically of course) around the page, and changing colors and
backgrounds (CSS); then we have a tool that designers would love as well.

Minimize the time of people.  Period.  :-)

..lessen the complexity and add to robustness.

Well, somebody's got to do something, eh?  ;-)
