this is an absolutely valid point... we can't forget that business 
issues can drive things like code compliance...

it's really the same as the whole CSS-only layout vs. tabled layout 
thing the WaSP has been pushing...

sure, we can do it, but the business needs are quite often counter 
to the WaSP mantra...

balance is key, but whenever possible, code well...

but i ain't givin' up notepad...
