No, the use case remains common that the template you choose to create a new
presentation with does not have the Slide master you want to use predefined. 

What then?  

The Master Page deck allows you to assign the slide a master from another
template--still quite functional and there is nothing in UI to replace that.

At the least, work flow for layout of a presentation to then use as a template
requires the deck's content pannels. Otherwise every slide master for a new
template starts from default.
