I fully expect there to be some dib elements in this repo, as soon as we
have some templates which use non-generic dib generated images

It sounds like the top level directory structure should be driven by
audience. So far I can think of:
- example templates which are mainly a demonstration of capability (this
is what we have now in-tree)
- templates used for integration tests (yet to be written)
- refstack
- templates/elements/tdls which will end up being production-ready for
real deployment
- DSL/HOT straw-templates

I'm not against scripts living in this repo too, like format conversion
scripts, or our devolved heat-jeos.
