Go down this route please.
I support your view completely, we should remove as much as possible
from swat and put it into template.
I would also put in template the page logic if possible; so that we can
easily switch froma a full featured javascript/css enabled frontend to a
classic text only frontend by just switching the theme.
That would be great :-)
