From my experience you have this problem regardless of what
vocabulary/technology you're using. Recreating a presentation
vocabulary, or simply using xhtml may still result in "bad design"
phenomenon. My reasoning for using xsl is to have an include/component
type functionality with parameter passing. And simply creating a new
markup to facilitate this seems redundant.
