I had tought about it as well.
When I said about increasing the funcionality of tens of dialogs
without changing any code besides adding this chain icon to
activate/deactivate unit conversion.
It could be even be done in a way that, when someone would select a
template, it would become locked - as it's default state on the New
Image Dialog should be open.
There is nothing about "impossibility" of working with templates here.
There is an issue about Left to right - top down reading and inputing
values into a form, or keeping a form that has one entry behaving
right to left, upside down.
