> You are absolutely right, mapping is a complicated stuff, but IMHO, you are wrong to state that using Fluid would be a more simple approach. Fluid requires new technical knowledge where existing techniques such as TemplaVoilà only require HTML knowledge and a little Typoscript therefore it is not much simpler to newbies.

I would say the opposite is true ;)
To me, FLUID is very easy for beginners, because it does not add new 
syntax (okay, there is the shorthand syntax, but ...). It's like 
learning a couple of new HTML tags. Much easier than learning 
TypoScript, especially to someone who does templates and is not a developer.

Yes, I think my approach is based a lot on the concept of models like we 
have them in FLOW3.

Very true, but often good things come from taking something that is out 
there and redo it to make it better. Anyway, I don't feel my solution is 
reinventing at all - it only puts together concepts that are already out 
there and that will be familiar to most people dealing with TYPO3 v5 
(only FLUID knowledge needed)
