The whole point of templates is that it guides you into writing log
messages in a certain style. If you have multiple templates then you
first have to select which one to use.

If you added comments to the file then you must have had a working copy.
You can't do that from Repo browser. The only operations are
copy/move/rename/delete. And for that type of operation the log message
is usually trivial. Sometimes there might be a more complicated reason,
like project restructuring, but then you will want to write a special
log message to explain it. I can't see why you need a log message
history here.

The only (slightly) useful customization would be to change the default
message that comes up with repo browser commit dialogs. And that would
be a client global setting. Is it really worth it?
