I see that people are mentioning not changing away from WML all the
time, and it almost seems religious.

The main deal (AFAIK) with WML, and the big problem with alternatives,
is translation: I hear that the current setup has a very efficient
translation infrastructure and process set up, which would be very hard
to reimplement using a different system.  All the pages in the main
website are translated in a respectable number of languages.

In case someone is tempted with replacing WML with other systems,
translation using potfiles is a main requirement that should be taken
into consideration.
