what is the current implementation (lo < 4.0) :
- is there a default .ott, .otc, otd, otp ?
- or is it harcoded ?

I realize there is no feed-back to inform user which template is default.
Can we add some visual feed-back ?
for ex a special background or border, an icon, or bold text ?

And if the default template is hardcoded, can we add some information 
text to say "The default Writer/Calc/Impress/Draw template is defined by 
If you can create a "blank" template (eg corresponding to LO default), 
the action in gear menu seems useless.

Just a reflexion : wouldn't it be interesting to show all default

for Impress, 1 for Draw
