IMHO keeping a template with the minimum required is not what one would 
want to start with when skinning, and history has shown us that most if 
not all skins are derivations from the complete skins.

Furthermore, the fact that is /should/ not need maintainance does not 
need that it won't need it. Sinc nobody checks, we could easily ship 
with a broken template skin.
