Well, although I understand the ease-of-use argument I would also make 
one point of clarification here. If the end-user of the environment is 
focused on maintaining content, then TYPO3 is still certainly 
appropriate. In my case, I have several deployments with folks who have 
no idea what CMS means... but they successfully manage content within 
TYPO3 without difficulty. They only solicit my help if they need to 
adjust their templates, which for them doesn't happen very often.

So, I wouldn't take TYPO3's back-end learning requirements to suggest it 
can't be used effectively has a content management system by end-users. 
The difficulty comes when end-users want to actually manage templates 
and site design. :-)
