Advanced content manager systems using PHP or other langages do care
about this issue since long. 

e.g. I'm using Drupal for a website with the boost module which serve
statics and even gziped pages in case of anonymous browsing (it is a
caching system), still it allow the use of PHP/MySQL if you need
advanced feature like logging, editing and so on.

see: http://drupal.org/project/boost

Usability is still a concern with this particular setup. But there is no
need to drop PHP/MySQL, we already have good technical solution for the
scaling issue.

I use it here: http://www.ekiga.org/
It serve static HTML for most visitors, still you can login (hidden
feature) and edit using PHP/MySQL and have the full power of drupal at
hand :)
