Okay. To summarize for all the people in this thread:
 * Sympal theme is an attempt to improve the XHTML. It is a basetheme that 
comes with many pre-made .tpl.php files which you can use to change into your 
own preferred XHTML. 
 * Theme pack is an attempt to split out logic and presentation more. This wll 
be achieved by creating many pre-made .tpl.php files which you can use to 
change into your own preferred XHTML. 

So, I think both should be used in separate cases but both can work together 
very well. Here are my plans: 
* I will continue to make more .tpl.php files for sympal_theme, thereby 
maintaining a consistent XHTML structure and predictable IDs and Classes.
* Whenever there are many more tpl.php files release by Theme Pack, I will try 
to look for a smoother way to get these files into sympal theme, thereby 
changing them to maintain that consistent XHTML and so on.

Once Theme Pack reaches step #5, I think we can look how/if the structure of 
Sympal theme suits the needs for the "experts to look at the XHTML". But I 
think it may be a good idea to read up on 
http://www.stuffandnonsense.co.uk/archives/whats_in_a_name_pt2.html and the 
links in there. That is the best documentation of how I ordered the XHTML. If  
people like that concept, we may alreay have the biggest part of 5 done :)
