Well, it's Perl, so there's more freedom but also more responsibility ;) Also, you can overwrite (for example) the "process" method of the template, get the template out of the arguments, and set the stash variable.
Personally, I never had any problem using the stash or organizing the passed data. More the other way, it gives great possibilities. Also, if modules write into the stash or use it, it's usually documented.
What I also like on Catalyst, if there's no other way than to look in the code, it's well written and easy to understand. My impression in #catalyst is also, that patches and ideas are very welcome, just to say.
