Yes, TALES seems to be the way to go, unless we opt for a really
micro-language dedicated to do only one thing and nothing more. I'm 
unconvinced I want to explain ZPT with omit-tag etc for someone just writing
SQL, for instance, though. Looks worse and is harder to explain even
than DTML, which is bad news.
