I don't think you are explaining yourself well. There is nothing
about webservices that makes having templates better or worse.
Webservices are orthogonal to having templates. Your first example of
story templates is a great idea regardless of whether Geeklog has or
doesn't have webservices. IOW, it would be nice for the story editor
to take the submitted story and click a dropdown containing "existing
story templates". He selects a template appropriate to the story and
magically the story text is merged with the template and now this
story about cows looks like all the other stories about cows. Or in
this case, all livejournal submitted stories look like other
