Yes, good point! Haven't thought about this.
But of course you could provide people how work like this with a 
solution that works like TV: Let people map objects onto HTML files and 
generate a FLUID template from it.
But IMHO it is faster to learn FLUID. How long would it take to learn, 
say, 3 tags and how to output variables? 1 hour?

Hmm sounds like they made their own custom solution ... in this case 
it's always hard to build a bridge to a new system. But for standard TV, 
you could build a converter from TV Mappings + HTML files to FLUID 
(That's all sepculating FLUID templates will be used ... who knows?)
