IMHO it should be just the other way around, since it's superfluous to 
write stdWrap each time, when each and every cObject is known to have 
the full set of stdWrap properties.

TEXT is the only element so far, that does not make use of that "second 
level" stdWrap, although it's possible to do it, since there is 

So currently we just make an extra call to stdWrap, which should of 
course be avoided, but it would be good to just write


instead of


and it would be consistent, since we don't do it for the stdWrap 
properties as well.

We are writing


and not


but actually it should be


It would be easier to read and even while parsing the TypoScript it 
would save us some time.

Just my 2 cents
