The query is a good point I forgot - but not showing the DS does not automatically mean not to use internally a DS field. But I guess a wizard inside a TCEFORM is not easy to provide.
How about providing the template wizard as tab in the TV tab-bar? That should work and would even be easier to use for editors than going to 'edit page properties' for that. Just an idea - I don't know if this can be done or not and how much work that would be. I know that there is a hook for tabs, but I don't know anything about the core and which functions would have to be called to update the page record and TV correctly after switching the templates.
