|   Seriously, this is a long-term maintenance nightmare.

As usual: it depends.

Such a Architectural Form might be very userfriendly and therefor worth
the maintenance.

Please, read more about Architectural Forms and Architectural Processing
in David Megginson's book "Structuring XML Documents" -- the paper is
thick and the title is a litte bit mis-leading: fortunately, it's more
about SGML (from the title page: "Covers XML and full SGML").  But the
contents are great!

[I've no connection with David nor with Prentice Hall; I'm just a happy
reader of this book.]
