you don’t have to, but you’ll get a better, cleaner, template if you’ve been 
using the original image before (added accounts, installed stuff…things people 
usually do when preparing a template:)
we’re looking into integrating it into UI, as it is quite easy to omit a thing 
or two when sealing it manually

It may make sense to use it for initialization during deployment as well as a 
replacement of cloud-init not requiring you to initialize it by running it. You 
would have to do it yourself, making sure the image is not in use while the 
operation is ongoing.
I think it would also be nice to completely integrate it into “create VM from 
Template” flow. You would have a ready-to-go VMs customized at the time of 
creation already, instead of relying on runtime cloud-init
