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 
livejournal stories.

Right, but is there some reason you are linking this idea to webservices?
