Fine as long as there will be an equivalent overlay mechanism. (Using HTML5?) Like I
stated elsewhere re-building UI completely via DOM injection is very cumbersome and
will be a deterrent for anyone who wants to augment the UI in a meaningful way.
Also what about l10n? the current mechanism of replacement of &language; entities is
very straightforward, hope this is not going to all have to be done in code now.
