Content templates very usefully allow complex/rich formats to be pre-established for Wiki pages etc - but if there are a number of users with full 'editor' permissions it would be very useful to be able to put individual Content templates under a 'change control' process where only one individual (and the admin) can change/update it, and to be able to segment the access to a large number of content templates by an individual Category.
Being able to 'lock' a template in the same way as a Wiki page etc is assumed to be a simple way of achieving the 'lock' request but there may be better ways of achieving the effect.
Adding a Category function may have some more 'interesting' consequences since some thought should be given as to whether the categorisation is inherited by the wiki page/newsletter or whether the template, whilst only being available to a user with the right category permissions, should then just be pasted into the edit screen and the resultant page categorised as required.
update June 2013 - still a very useful Feature Request !
