I wasn't suggesting a template system at all, just a filter on the WP 
template-editing textareas that make the template syntax friendlier for 
people editing through the web form.

The only additional overhead would be for viewing and saving the 
template edit form. Not a lick of other WP code would change, all the 
files would still be saved as native PHP. This would preclude any of the 
templating systems that parse on runtime, like all of the ones evaluated 
3 years ago here:
