…official templates would not be created by the unqualified.
That sounds snobby, but if you end up using a template that looks all right, but has all the problems I’ve talked about in these posts, then it becomes a problem for everyone. Don’t delegate it to anyone who has the time.
Give it to someone who has the knowledge and the experience to create something that is correctly set up and will hopefully prevent many of the issues we see.

This diagram accompanies the latest episode of my podcast, which you can listen to while perusing the details of the seminal post-rock history.
Here’s the podcast anyway:
