When an encounter expands to latex formatted text, you have to fix up the
template to accommodate the latex formatted information. Though this might have
advantages, It takes away the flexibility of having a template which expands to
simple text. Eg if  a placeholder say "soap" expands to \item s \item o \item a
and \item p, I will have to use enumerate, itemise or description environment
by compulsion. If instead you have placeholder "s" which only pulls
"subjective" information from the database, the ultimate formatting can be
achieved using latex template or as a simple text format. This choice then rest
on user's expertise and or liking.
