Is there really a need to invent a new template format?

The JOSM templates are now also used outside of JOSM world and have 
matured a lot. Taking that format sounds more sensible to me than 
reinventing a new one.

If additional information is required I'm open to suggestion how to 
implement them into JOSM's format

Especially, as e.g. this issue is already solved in JOSM's format and 
translations exist there too for multiple languages.
