Okay purist :)

Seriously, I can't disagree more.  Templates control the display of content,
and if that means your theme is designed to display a single news report,
then it is.  If the template needs to display a different block of html  if
there is no right block (seriously, my biggest bitch as a designer), we're
pretty much screwed UNLESS we alter the code .. which defeats the point of
templates in the first place.

You don't NEED to use them.  They're there if you WISH to use them.
