When configuring an additional server in a domain, it provides a chance to pull databases like the directory and directory assistance from another server.  It also provides for modifying the ACLs of the templates.  It would be helpful to provide the option to pull templates from another server instead of installing new ones.
Ideally I have already modified the templates with any customizations, most notably the ACLs.  Also, these new templates will try to push their designs out to the other servers.  That is never desirable.  I would like an option to pull the templates from another server at the time of configuring the new server.

How about going 1 step further: Maybe not even putting the templates on the server at all, but just tell the server that whenever it need a template, to get them from server X. That will save you a few Mbs of HD space and 1 less thing to worry about.

Servers need the templates to reside locally for things like the design task and decreases the robustness of the system with a single point of failure. In this day of GB and TB drives, I don't see a benefit to saving a few MB. Does your lack of a vote mean you don't support the idea?
