I wonder if there are some best practices to write a magento theme (and maybe plugins as well). The theme we wrote is always pain in the ... to update when magento come with the new version, tons of things must be again rewriten and controlled etc. The same with the language packs - found the new nontranslated texts in that tons of csv files is horible.

I do not like default theme, i prefer better semanthics, less divs etc.

only change the css.  You can make the core themes look very different with some css.  Then when you upgrade there is on issue because you only need to add your style sheets to the new templates

I do not want other, e.g. blank theme. I want my theme with my defined blocks, my div names etc.
