So does this take us fully back to Inline Extensions, or is there a
distinction that I'm missing?

I still don't see that Extension Templates are all bad:
  * They preserve the fact that two instances of the same extension
(e.g. in different databases) were created from the same template.
  * They mirror the file-based templates, so it seems easier to get
consistent behavior.
