Hey Victor

Yes and no. There seems to be some effort in attempting to achieve  
this in  the future, but it is certainly not there (yet), as you say  
yourself Drupal "goes a long way", but just not (yet) far enough.

Just take a look at ROOT/includes/menu.inc, e.g. line653:
return "\n<ul class=\"menu\">\n". $tree ."\n</ul>\n";

There's more in that file. Including mark up violates MVC separation IMHO.

Actually, I thought this is exactly where Earls' project suggestion is  
suppose to lead us to (clean MVC). Someone please correct me!

separate logic from presentation without adding too much processing time to
the code.

By the way Earl, I am also interested in this project, but am  
currently a little busy with some other stuff. Further I agree with  
Victors first suggestion to turn this into a Drupal Dojo project.

Bright Regards
