"Dreamweaver on the verge of extinction" - interesting statement
Using DW will give you total control over the html in your site.
Using WP or something other CMS will not necessarily. Using CMS plugins/themes will generate code that you will not have control over.
So it depends what you are after.
Personally I use both (not for the same site) - each has pros and cons.
To answer your initial question - do you fancy cutting and pasting 100 pages into WP pages/posts? Or using the original design tool to enhance their design? You mention having to build 13 DW templates, you'd still have to do something similar in WP or other CMS.
