declarative mapping of urls to code, of code to templates, abstracting away
the details of GET and POST, validating and decoding parameters, especially
if these become larger repetitive structures like several addresses of a
user, re-rendering invalid form-data, working with HTML or JSON as output,
managing transactions, providing a error-reporting-infrastructure

The list continues.
