The monthly password reminder is a single reminder for all lists in the

a single list, even if it only contains one password for one list.
Thus, it always uses either the default cronpass.txt template or a
sitewide edited cronpass.txt template if any. It does not use a domain
specific or list specific version of the template even if there is one.

Their "friendly" names for edithtml.py are any name you want to make
up to describe them.

I think the only ones which are used without a list context and for
which editing via edithtml.py is ineffective are cronpass.txt and
