Again too much time consuming for the developers, while a CMS will do the job without involving developer in such a wasting way.
Any CMS will have its own language and terminology, whether or not time spent is wasted depends on the business case. Whether or not you choose Textpattern, thanks for the insight into your situation, and best wishes with your project.
