If you are using template technologies to do the mapping on the server side
no problems (except probably the increased dev. costs). Howver if like us
use XML transformation on the client side you create your code from the
transformation process and do not want to write two stylesheets and increase
your costs. Guess why we have this massive outsourcing problem right now....
