I am also very interested in this question. I think there is a tendency 
to include too much in HTML - "since that what developers know".

Except for the case of repeating stuff on a multi-line form (already 
covered in Web forms 2) I have never felt the need for any client side 
template system, nor have I read of any app where this might be useful.

BTW, will they degrade gracefully?
