Is this just a matter of style or do exact templates perform better?

A matter of robustness and maintainability. Just add templates instead of adding when-clauses, perhaps with ever more intricate conditions. In general, templates are slower but there is rarely a mesurable difference (you need hundreths of matching tamplates).

Hm, I generate quite a lot of cells (the document contains only tables) and thought that a template for generating cells would reduce filesize and improve readability of the stylesheet.

The verbose call-template syntax doesn't reduce the filesize either, and named template invocations can really hide what's going on. But it's your choice. Try both on a small part and see what fits you better.
