But that merely established a minimum under international law. Unless you
have some case law that says otherwise I'd suggest that article 6 applies
to unpublished photographs which results in an effective term of life+10
for unpublished photographs (although life+30 could be gained through
careful timing of publication).

See the last section of the template talk page which covers some of the
issues the template has with US law. I'm afraid years of use doesn't mean
that it has been reviewed by common's more serious copyright nerds.
