This is probably a good thing to do.  For example, there are also templates at 
documentation.openoffice.org, like an Org Chart, an Excellence Award, etc.  
There are also quite a few at ooextras.  A select # should probably get added to 
the base package since they don't really take up much space, perhaps another 
500k or so for a few.
