Put those "templates' in a separate repository, and derive the content
of them with "svn:externals" or a build process that exports their
content. This will break the ability to "svn copy" them. You you then
get things to the template is a separate issue.

Personally, I think this is silly: if you can't copy the templates,
you can't bring along their history or their Subversion properties,
such as EOL format or svn:keywords. But it's your environment..
