These days I realize there is value to maintaining less abstraction especially when the thing that would otherwise be abstracted is well-known and standard such as SQL or HTML.  When I started programming in ASP in 1995 (after a 7+ years of prior dev experience) I tried to encapsulate HTML into an abstracted object. After much wasted effort I realized that, verbose though it may be, HTML was a great language on its own.

I would strongly agree with this.

This is also protecting us against something that hasn't been a problem 
in a while, I don't want coding WordPress to make me take off my shoes 
when I go through the metal detector.
