I consider Typoscript as what it is:
A way to define TYPO3 APIs.

nono... you got me wrong here.
I meant that you could point out ways to improve usability (because I 
personally am too used to TYPO3 thus I don't see where improvements are 
needed) but while you point out things to improve keep in mind that 
there are a lot of people used to the system (in other words: Don't 
throw everything around since others might have problems finding their 
way in)

umm... yeah... just like I stated in my post.

Yeah, maybe the wroding isn't perfect.
Noone forces you to use this template.
But if you do, if generates "questionable" source, which you have to fix.
This comes from the fact that typo3 is quite old and this template is so 

All in all you seem to think that I am mad at you - but I am not.
I just wanted to show ways how to participate.
Maybe others kept shouting around so you misunderstood my post.
keep cool
