I'm sure what you are doing will work great for you, but I'm wondering how you are managing with only one template per page? I know that many have said this so far, but let me give you a more detailed account of why we are all questioning your use of only one template.
On any given page I actually load at least 4 templates. One for the top, one for the bottom, one for the left side menu, and one for the main part of the application. If I have an administrative block (for instance, the posting portion of a news page) then a fifth may load for that(depending, of course, on the currently logged in user). The only way I could see managing my site with a template in a DATA section would be to include the top, bottom and left menu templates, and then put the actual "application" info into the data section. I would genuinely consider doing that (it is a novel idea and I rather like it) but for two things: 1- I totally switch my display for errors(I have a template that gets called in place of everything else for error reporting) and 2- I have a team working on my site so I'm afraid that it might make CVS even weirder than it already is.
Good idea though, if you can pull it off.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
