as far as I can see, Templates must be defined in their source document,
and can not be defined programmatically, except maybe with a plug-in. You'd
have to check the Portable Document Format Specifications for details.

When you add a template to a new document, you have added the objects of
the template, but not their meaning as a template.

Hope, this can help.
