Yes, there was a lot of convoluted thought in the larger thread of  
Standardized template API which got intermingled with a related  
proposal to standardize common parts used within template languages  
themselves. We're currently steering back to just standardizing  
*using* the various templates, and saving the much more complex issue  
of their internals for a later point.
