Thanks to you and Tim for the clarifications.  

I can see in the source code, spplot.R, that SpatialPolygonsDataFrame and SpatialLinesDataFrame are handled by levelplot; thanks for pointing that out. That SpatialPointsDataFrame is handled by xyplot gives me pause now.  In fact, if I think about it it confuses me, so I best not think about that first thing in the morning!

I agree with Tim that starting with the raster first and then adding the polygons with latticeExtra::as.layer() is more intuitive. 

Thanks again,
