I disagree.

While ZPT is slower than DTML it has less feature bloat and
is more orthogonal than DTML.
Therefore, it is easier than DTML.

All new things (e.g. internationalization) will only go into
ZPT. There is no longer any active development for DTML.
This may be an additional reason to switch to ZPT.
