Yeah, if you have root privelidges to remove said templates from a
global directory. This is fine if you're working on a single user
machine and you're the admin. Really really bad if you're on any
multiuser machine, be it in a corporate environment or just the kid of
an Ubuntu dad who really likes his 40 global templates.

It's perfectly supported as designed. Put some template in ~/Templates
and enjoy. If you want to push it to new users, put it in
/etc/skel/Templates and every new user gets them.

Choice of menu items vs. Compulsory menu options. Hmm, tough choice eh?
