Really? Just to be clear, this function would have no impact on the
way the template loader falls back to index.php if the query templates
are missing.

Only header.php, footer.php, sidebar.php, comments.php and
comments-popup.php are loaded in this way, and I've never seen a theme
missing the first two, at least.

Still, that's why I asked if there was a reason. :P
