Well, that depends on how the templates are done. I've been
experimenting with putting skin furniture stuff in wikipages, and
letting the template use the first available wikipage in the list,

<!--wiki: $Group.ActionList $SiteGroup.ActionList Site.ActionList-->
A setup where most of the stuff that the admin actually might want to
change lives in wikipages, but the framework holding them together is
in the template will probably work pretty well.  Also, no matter how
views are implemented, one could avoid eating one's marmalade.

That'd be nifty, though it would need integration with the
Site.Preferences features as well as with the skin.
