I'm Laurent's side here.

Ensuring our tool works properly even without _javascript_ is a premium.
It's very easy to forget these days with full JS apps that we need to have a proper HTML fallback that meets real use cases (text browser, slow connection/clients, accessibility…).

Keeping the separation explicit forces developers to think about it.

Of course accessibility is now doable with JS only but it's an awful lot of work when a simple HTML fallback does the job.

The selenium tests would be awesome but it's a lot of work ;)

About accessibility (blatant thread hijacking):
I don't know if we made a formal announcement but we attended a presentation with Charles Benke from Jean-Philippe Mengual at the latest RMLL about Dolibarr usability for blind people. (
It was a very constructive and moving talk from which I drafted the most obvious points he made at
I don't know how to promote these good habits to Dolibarr developers but it's something we need to keep in mind.
