Ah, same experience with Askemos, where I'm looking over the shoulders
of average programmers learning Scheme/XSLT first time (an invaluable
situation to watch the "natural" selection of a mind without deeply
trained preferences).

They develop a tendency to use mostly XML syntax for the view (as in
MVC) part of the agents, which is mostly markup.  Scheme/DSSSL
dominates the controller part.  Variables (the model third) are
typically mixed: records have a tendency to be XML and derived values
are more often Scheme.



The worst of harm may often result from the best of intentions.
