It depends on the input XML and the desired output. If I want highly
structured output from unstructured input, I don't use many templates. On
the other hand, if I have similarly structured input and outputs, I tend to
use more templates... there aren't any hard and fast rules. If it makes it
more generic to use templates in an application, use them... otherwise, its
personal preference.
