OK, so I will add the necessary TS across all static template versions, 
for the sake of completeness.

Neither do I, but they are still there. Actually it might be good to 
deprecated the oldest ones (e.g. before 4.5), but we have no way of 
deprecating a static template. Should we add one? It could be worth it, 
otherwise we will keep accumulating static templates till the end of time.
