OT: does that mean that you suggest to set the DS and TO in every page and not use the template inheritance in order to get some performance boost? Sounds at least logical to me.

Didn't sound that big to me ;) more as addition to the current one - not as overall replacement. And you don't have to do it - the idea just came to my mind. But I suppose that would slow down the backend when the templates have to be provided on every page. Maybe Ajax would do the trick. Again - just thoughts with no deeper meaning ;)

Kind regards,
