Nobody has ever asked for entire ooextras to be in core. Just a few,
select good templates - ooextras was just one example of a source for
such templates. Maybe not more than five or so. But *some*.

Having seen how mac users and iWork users expect templates, i don't see
any reason why Linux users shouln't. It is just a matter of making the
user more productive in making contenent and publishing it, without
having to waste time and energy on figuring out how to make a nice
layout.
