I use shortcut from "Home" to root all the time.

You don't need to do this way. Just create another template and use it 
as template on next level (I'm not sure about the exact name of this 

What it means - have your setup in a root template with

page.20 {
     template.file = fileadmin/domain.org/home.tmpl

and then into the next template, which will be used for subpages place 
only this:

page.20 {
    template.file = fileadmin/domain.org/content-subpages-whatever.tmpl

There's another thing that's sort of a problem. You may want to have 
"Home" link in your rootpage highlighted as if it was active. I do it 
this way:

root template:

# add class active to the first item of the menu
lib.menu.1.NO.ATagParams = class="active" ||

subpages template:
lib.menu.1.NO.ATagParams >

Maybe there's a better way, e.g. using "alwaysActivePid" in the root 
template. But so far, I'm okay with this one.
