Page templates are currently static (read-only) common elements on a 
page. They're useful for common banners, footers, logos, etc, but not 
for (eg) providing a common text frame layout for a page.

"editable page templates" are a very often requested feature, and it's 
on the 1.3.x roadmap. Like many things, it's just a matter of priorities 
and time.

In the mean time, you can usually do a lot of common page layout 
automation with a group in the scrapbook or with a python script.
