 Summary - ticket:5552#comment:10:

 > All of this points to a deeper problem, which is that it's problematic
 for template routing - the selection of templates based on the current
 URL/component/action - to be happening inside of templates. Templates are
 loaded from the outside in (home.php contains settings.php contains
 plugins.php), and when the routing logic is inside of the templates, by
 the time you get to settings.php it's not possible to say "whoops, this
 actually isn't a settings page". Contrast this with what good WP themes
 do: get_template_part( 'content', get_post_format() ); is a single line
 that leaves the routing logic out of the template, where it can be
 filtered/modified independent of the template load order. Obviously,
 moving toward this kind of system is a ton of work, but I do think it's at
 the root of the trouble we're currently having.
