Think of Revolution (or perhaps more appropriately Dreamcard) in this  
context. If we could define, say, 10 or 12 basic application types  
that have a significant number of elements in common within each and  
make it possible to get a big head start in creating an app by  
choosing what we can think of as a template for that type of  
application, and if we could do that without limiting what you could  
do to the resulting semi-auto-generated code, where would be the harm?
