Template is totally the wrong word.  It is a host address without a
network.  The prefix is there for the same purpose, to OR it back into a
network address.

I just want us to stop inventing things that already exist.  You want to
specify the gateway IP, to get that you need a network address, presumably
to be allocated somewhere and a host address.  OR them together and you
have an IP address.
