Yep. It's not easy to define those priorities as
Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu/Netbook and other derivatives all have various
use cases.

We can try using a wiki and from there to create the required SQL query.

I have started this page:

In the default list of templates about 270 (half of them) are
OpenOffice.org. Are they updated with language packs? Maybe we can leave
them out. 

As a start, I have created the following categories. Feel free to
discuss them and their rationale can be found on the wiki page.
     1. Templates included only on the Live-CD (bootloader , installer)
        > 1000
     2. Ubuntu/Kubuntu specific templates 900 - 999
     3. Templates changed in Ubuntu/Kubuntu 800 - 899
     4. Templates with a high user visiblity and installed by default
        (like firefox, nautilus, empathy, dolphin) 700 - 799
     5. Ubuntu-docs Kbuntu-docs Xbuntu-docs Edubuntu-docs .. other docs
        600 - 699
     6. All other library templates 500 -599
     7. All other GUI templates 400 - 499
     8. All other text mode apps templates < 399

We need some feedback from the Kubuntu team to define the KDE specific
