That would seem to be a very good way to do it.  So you'd have the template but 
then have a shortcut key that called that.  Any possibility that you could just 
define those shortcut keys when creating the template? (Rather than have to 
define the template, then go associate a key with calling it.)

Less convenient than just being able to map it to a keystroke I'd say, but might 
be helpful to see them I suppose.
