Horse feathers!

If you distribute a template to all your writers that *doesn't* define the built-in paragraph styles--specifically Normal, Heading X, TOC X, and Index X--how on earth are you gonna keep the other writers from using those styles, with predictably chaotic results?

That's precisely why you *should* use the built-in styles in your template, name the template something besides, and make sure every writer is using it.
