I think that Matthew is totally right: the responsability is on distros to
handle a correct list of templates, regarding application they shipped and
maintain it accorded to its evolution. This would provide reasonable default
which can hilight this feature for new users and give them a clue on how
they can populate the "Create Document" item.

This feature is, to my mind, very powerful, easy to use but unfortunately
unknown because of not explaining/guiding people on how to use it.
