The whole "get/post/template/whatever" stuff that Dancer provide form a
language that is specific to creating web applications, i.e. specific to the
particular "domain" we're talking about.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain-specific_language can be more
"In software development <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_development>
and domain engineering <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_engineering>,
a *domain-specific language* (*DSL*) is a programming
to a particular problem domain, a particular problem representation
technique, and/or a particular solution technique."
