It has already been vetoed, time and again and almost certainly will be again.

One thing you may want to check out is Maven at

I haven't looked at it but I suspect that it is very close to what you want. 
A brief look at it gave me the impression that it was very similar to the 
templating ideas that I have been advocating for over a year. The difference 
being that it uses Velocity rather than XSLT and comes with some 
preconfigured templates.

If you do look into it I would love to hear what you think of it. I plan to 
convert some Avalon files across to using it in the future (well at least if 
it offers everythin I thiknk it offers).
