What's the consensus on Fresnel?

It seems obvious to me that RDF needs a decent templating language, and 
AFAIK Fresnel is the only option. Is that right, or are there others?

I've found some grumbling about the fact that Fresnel is defined in RDF 
(I can see the argument on both sides, though lean towards the belief 
that plain XML would have been better), but not a whole lot more.

PS - The OASIS OpenDocument TC approved our metadata proposal on Monday, 
but one notable omission is templating for display configuration; hence 
the question.
