No (well, not only).
I can see several migration paths for Nevow.

1) Write the replacement for rend.Page as page.Page.
    This can be done right now (as with page.Element).

2) Write a replacement of flat, with cleaner code but still with support
    for data directives (to maintain compatibility with existing code)

3) Modify appserver and rend to support the new flat

4) Migrate all to web2, remove support for data directives and macros

Another path is:
1) write a new (sub) package named stan (nevow.stan) with only the 
support for rendering

2) add in Nevow the support for stan

I think that writing a new, self contained, simpler and well documented 
stan package is the best solution (since stan can be used with other web 
toolkits - I just read a blog where someone has written a 
reimplementation of stan for Turbogears).

Ok, thanks.
I should start to use the tracker...
