But that's just archiving, like rancid, right?  Still doesn't have any 
correlation to the template-management side of things.  While having the 
backups makes it easy to check for simple things ("do all my routers have 
the right syslog host set?"), OP's question is about tracking what versions 
of templates may have been applied to routers; if there's any complex logic 
(like, "are all active customer routes on this device included in the bcp38 
acl on the upstream interface") or site-specific things, that can get a lot 
harder to audit without the metadata on how the configuration got there.
