Hi Daniel,

I don't fully understand what "methods of the presentation model" are  
in this context. Could you clarify this? :-)

Concerning access to view methods: I'd rather forbid this at the  
moment, as I think it is more easy and clean to write custom view  
helpers for this (which is really easy to do anyways). However, after  
we started playing around with the templating when it is working, if  
we still notice that we need such a functionality, we can think about  
implementing it.

Well, not fully - but as how I understood it the following is  

<f3:for each="{blog.listItems}" as="listItem">

The {...} syntax is actually an object-traversal syntax currently  
taking getters and public properties into account.

I think that's what you wanted, right?

Good point. We'll still think about localization.
