This is true and could be done. Again, in the interest of a working 
prototype in a reasonable amount of time, I would say we'll come back to 
this as adding it at a later date will be trivial.

Actually, settings are stuffed into GLIInstallProfile by the controller 
(part of the back end). The profile (data) and arch template (logic) are 
then put together in a similar fashion as XML and XSL are combined (in 
theory, not implementation). Of course, this will probably have to 
perform differently when doing immediate fire actions, but is another 
reason why I'd like to get things working before we do things like that.

Again, messaging is not done as XML, only state is saved that way. This 
means that the firing of actions will probably be done by the controller 
calling the logic from the arch templates immediately. This is more of 
an implementation issue but is something that will be kept in mind.
