Well the point of a theme framework for me:
* Core WP files remain untouched.
* Core Theme files remain unedited.
* Styles applied via custom CSS file
* Additional Functionality/Configuration Option for theme delivered
* Further customization available via custom hooks and plugins.
YMMV, but if these 5 bullets were added to WP for any/every possible
implementation of the above, then we'd have a lot more theme than
engine, IMHO. With so many theme frameworks out there, offering
different variations on the above, is it that hard to just install the
one of your choice? You can even add it before install so you can
activate it immediately. Coupling any more presentation functionality
(conditionals, template tags) than is necessary to WP Core is the
surest way to bloat it up. Give me the 80% for free. I'll take care of
the other 20%.
