Well, I don't think that TypoScript can be defined (or implemented)  
as a framework. It is a specific feature, not a container for  
components and therefore can rather be specified as a component  
itself (as in software componentry).

However I agree that TypoScript and the related processors are an  
interesting feature which could be used in projects other than TYPO3  
CMS. It might by worth discussing if we then should put all  
TypoScript related classes in its own package instead of making it a  
subpart of the CMS package. As always, I guess we'll soon find out as  
we start developing it ...
