Please see previous threads (and most usefully, the original thread) about
Templates support for some discussion about why this won't happen. We will
end up with the same kind of complicated mess we have with menus if we ship
templates by default and allow applications to 'register' their own. That's
why only ~/Templates is read, and why it's left entirely up to the user (in
their home directory), admin or distribution (in /etc/skel).
