I don't know if anyone else has an issue with regular users not being able to edit in the template namespace. It's ultimately my fault (I advised Karsten to protect certain high-visibility templates, e.g. {{Riesel prime}} and {{Vn}}, and he made the whole namespace admin-only for editing), but there may be value in allowing regular users to edit lower-value templates. Heck, we can't even create or experiment in template sandboxes or edit the documentation! If having regular users edit production templates is undesirable, perhaps Wikipedia's template editor right could serve as a model, opening up the namespace as a whole (meaning brand new and unused templates, documentation, sandboxes, and possibly testcases) to all users and restricting edit permissions on the production templates to "template editors" (or admins for the most important templates).
