You would need something to close off the 'if' statement, otherwise, a
document full of 'if' statements and no 'else' ones could fill up a stack

You would at the very least need something like:

Which would ensure / cut back on needless growth of stacks and/or global

Personally, I think the way Page Templates can do it (via a 'not'
expression) is fine.  When I used it today (and in the past), I never felt
myself missing 'else', because there's not really an 'if' to begin with.
Just conditions.  It keeps TAL light, and lets TALES take on the lifting of
how to write those conditions.
