We often worry about lack of community involvement, but, when there is a
wonderful occasion where community involvement with such a contest where
there is a low-entry level of understanding of LibreOffice and where
template usage is directed towards our users, we do not even provide
users the chance to vote on a template contest ... surely a users idea
of what a good and purposeful template would be different from a
designer's perspective.

I'm *very* reluctant to such a community project: templates very often show their cultural origin. This means that an american template won't fit a French user at all, and vice versa. There are some such templates on the extensions website already. I had written about that problem to the authors, hoping to find a way to make better tools, to no avail yet.

I'm not sure users are aware of all the needed things to have a reliable
template and one that could be localized too, so the best way would be
that the design team does a pre selection and let the users vote only on
the templates that complies.

Could the Design team devise a" template template" that international users could use as a starting point?

My 2 cents,
