Beyond the example issue...

I think that not using templates would be a problem.  The templates
are there for a reason - to make at least part of the response
standardized, in a goes-on-the-record-and-reviewable manner.

It's one thing to say "Don't *just* template, explain also".  Saying
"Don't template" breaks a whole lot of how we do stuff now.
