save template without media - please please

Sitting here with a client waiting on me trying to make a template from one of the other songs in their project. For safety I need to back up the project … this has taken 6 minutes. Next I need to open that project… takes minutes
Select all, delete all, empty pool. Save as template

PLEASE give us the option to save templates and archive tracks without including the associated media…

This is so simple but causes me so much lost time
