Ok, Now I'm lost,
What in MapServer 5.6.x does NOT allow the integration of providing a URL based viewer (without further coding??) already.
All I'm suggesting is using a flexible approach, you seem bent on making the mode=openlayers option the final thing (whch would take aonly a few lines in the code to utilize a call to a TEMPLATE (that has the openlayers calls in it) just as easily as embedding the Openlayers calls in the code. Did I miss something more inportant somewhere?

I'm sorry but I don't get it... what is "the template route"... and what
does it allow you to do that you cannot already do today with MapServer
