It's an interesting idea, but I have to confess I never found them (predefined 
templates and frameworks) all that helpful in the past. 

Certainly, I have had "better" (in the sense of being quicker, easier, and 
better tailored to my needs) results just throwing together an initial 
"template" in fluid then building out from that.

But I have no idea what suits others in terms of workflow and such...
