Frameworks and Scalability – Antithesis?

I was thrilled to read about PlentyOfFish architecture at today. What impressed me most was the fact that an incredible amount of scalability was achieved completely ignoring a number of design qualities that web frameworks try to provide via layers of abstractions. This architecture just reinforces the idea that complex problems can be solved without complex abstractions.

I wonder if developers really need all those frameworks that try to hide the new from Java, the <a href="...&quot">...</a> from HTML or SELECT A, B, C from FOO from code?
