The other aspect of vm creation I don't see discussed much here is the
use of templates... they can save alot of time when you need to spawn
multiple like systems. The use of templates is something that IMO should
be considered as a best practice in production scenarios. One could
easily leverage a pre-packaged image by downloading and modifying it
into one's own template.

Yes thats what i have been trying to do. Take ready images and make my own templates for use. Once a template is ready, for each deployment minor mods can be made and the image can be deployed immediately.

P.S. Nice writeup in that wiki, it helped me a lot when i was trying to understand how to setup xen, lvm etc. Thanks.
