How would you do repeating texts or conditional texts like this? I mean,
perhaps it's obvious; I haven't played enough with ZPT yet.

I also think this looks rather unnatural when doing email templates or SQL
templates. A completely stripped down magic-less variety of something DTMLish
with support for tales expressions might be worth exploring for these
purposes. Another possibility is to design teeny dedicated systems that
are magic rich but extremely limited (and then strongly resist any 
extending it).

Something is needed for ZSQL at least in my opinion.

In XPath Methods I simply used the way XPath deals with variables ($foo)
to parameterize them. Perhaps there are some semi-standard conventions for
SQL that we could use?
