--- Comment #1 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---
No, IMHO this would not be a good idea. 

The Template Manager is only relevant when starting layout of a presentation.
And while themes/master slides from the selected template are available--it is
still common to use multiple master pages to consistently format blocks of
slides. Slide attributes like background, text font color and alignment, even
orientation. Master Pages for slides objects are a corollary to working with
Paragraph object styles.

They can be controlled per slide from Properties deck--but for working across a
presentation the Master Pages deck remains functional--and is the only way to
efficiently author a presentation--or prepare to a template for that matter.

The deck/content panels are still needed.

Trying to pack every needed layout into a template quickly makes the template
tedious to use. Defining templates and using Template Manager is a useful
workflow, but it does not and can not fully replace Master Pages.
