Note that public domain is completely different from copyleft. Some
people may not accept to publish their work under public domain
licenses, fearing that companies might improve it and sell it under
closed licenses, without sharing their changes with the community. With
copyleft licenses this would not be possible.

Anyway the idea of a contest to improve the templates is great. I hope
the best templates could be included by default in LO, which really
needs them!
