If we were to setup a Templating Team group and published a large variety of templates, then the 
LibO suite would become more valuable as an Office suite for everyone.

My suggestion would to be provide a templating_team with the

For some things, such as membership records, a database is required.
(I'm not going to get into a PICK v RDBM debate here.)

For others, a simple Write, Calc, or Impress template is suitable.

In an ideal situation, there is a database_creation team, that works in
conjunction with the template_creation team.

The template_creation team create a calc, impress, or write template,
that is then passed on to the database_creation team.  This (database)
team then determines whether this is something that is suitable for a

[Database rant: LibO should either add SQLite as a built in database
engine, or else replace Base database engine with SQLite.]

My guess is that some, if not most of the databases, will have to be
constructed as extensions. For example, a genealogical database would
have to be able to both import, and export data in GEDCOM format.

With experience, the database_creation team and the template_creation

that are on a par with those for MSO that have an MSRP of US$10K+.
