what you are writing there sounds nice, but it's really a bad thing  
for TYPO3.
TYPO3 shouldn't be hard to administer at all!!! If TYPO3 is hard to  
administer then more and more
people will not use TYPO3 but a other system because of the complexity  
and only
a 'elite' group will be left over that know TYPO3 well enough to  
create websites under.
I the community shrinks then there will be no TYPO3 at all.

We should place (at least try to) TYPO3 as a enterprise CMS, but we  
add the complexities around it, something that is really not needed.
