The sliders and any animation could quite easily be hard coded in. However, would this be good enough? How would those slider's work in WordPress, with custom fields?
To you understand the problem. I've seen some theme's which have an auto-complete button which kind of fills out all the information in. Those kind of themes are much easier to work with because you know where everything goes.
I have no idea how the auto-complete is achieved, but it seams to be common amongst Templatic themes.
