I think the objection ot a dynamic system is that he wanted people to be able to contribute while offline.
WordPress has settings to allow people to email in content for a post, (and with the right Author/Contributor/Editor settings), you'd have a means to give someone editorial control before the article was posted.
...that would allow the user to work on their post offline and then send in as email when it's ready.
EDIT: *** OOPS -- missed the part of wanting flat, static content, published as HTML files. ***
