New feature, new templates:

The new templates of impress are great. I am just wondering whether it would make sense to include more Writer and Calc or even Base templates as default.
I am thinking like small-, medium-business documents such as:
balance sheet, 
profit and loss accounts, 
yearly quarterly monthly weekly calendar templates even printable and fileable for folders and portfolios; 
banking calculators spreadsheet with most common calculations like intrests, loan, credit card, currency
invoicing database (base or calc multi-sheet)
customer info database (base or calc)
small business database (base)

Also :
Cards, greeting cards, invitations,etc., not necessary the ones we would buy a card anyway for.

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  
Has to be created manually.

Expected Results:
Have templates as default.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Why would it be better:
Professional looking as created by professionals
Industry standard on layout and look.
Help sole traders and new business owners
Gaining more users by providing basic tools, small business never will have a Full Customer Relation Management software with all of its functionality. 
A better and easier way of creating customer data using these templates/databases. Helping small business owners.

I personally do some sheets like them however the layout is never looking so professional even though I have a business degree. Having it out of box would be better.

As default it would be maintained a bit better than on the extension and template website, some of those templates are way outdated, not maintained.

I know, as I tried Base, is really hard to create such databases, not to mention the 'look and feel' of Base is like being back in the '90s. I always struggle with Base, I believe that needs updated UI, too. Circular letter wizard is really good.
