Exactly 👏 👏 👏
I am kind of blaming templating (= declarative) here. HTML itself is declarative so I can see how it evolved from it. With that said HTML was not originally intended for building real apps.
The box model also doesn't help (forces the designer to think in rectangles rather than more interesting shapes, unless they are willing to CSS the $#!t out of everything).
