We will keep two templates as long as no one finds a clean way to address both
use cases with a single template.

Realistically, since changing all the font packages in the distro to new
guidelines is a lot of work, this won't happen before the F12 cycle (and
probably not even then since no one has proposed new bright ideas so far)

The templates are not intended to be changed now that the review phase is
closed, the templates are documented in the wiki and many packagers have
already converted to them (of course minimal bug-fixing will occur if people
find problems but so far no one has complained about this part)

I hope those answers are satisfactory. I won't have much internet access before
2009 sorry :(
