You're missing a very important fact.  Most of the people creating CFM
web pages aren't writing the CFML by hand; they're using web
development environments that produce the ugly language for them.

The syntax doesn't stop people in this case because a large number of
them never pay any attention to the syntax at all.  They barely know
it is there.
