I always liked some aspects of TemplaVoila in the same way as I disliked 
some of them. Maybe I even liked and disliked some aspect at the same 
time :) It's hard to explain ...

I guess the feature I liked most about TemplaVoila was that the original 
template didn't had to get modified. You could simply hand it back to 
some Designer for letting him make modifications.

The words "fresh" and "modern" just lead me to the same rather 
philosophical question: How steers the ship?

I guess in the same way as web development recognized the needs for 
responsiveness by adapting to different clients and devices we should 
recognize requirements for the new stuff within TYPO3.

You have integrated a very nice MVC framework into the CMS I like. And 
now you tell me you wouldn't add anything which makes daily use of this 
framework easier. I should rather just recode my "Page" and "Menu" 
domain model everytime I need it ...

This is why I wrote in my primary message that many people currently 
have their own domain models which they just copy to any extension where 
it is needed. Why not provide a set of small standard ones?
