I absolutelly agree with you, it is like my words.

But separation of logic and presentation could be done successfully in DTML
too. ZPT, which have "separation argument" is not as easy to make totally
separated design as marketing says, for example see Plone - try to customize
plone site to absolutelly different custom design - it is near impossible.
