Yup, considering the list of the events usable for ADs will be very short (to adhere to the BigG's rules at least), I think that's the way to go. If more template events are needed they could be (you know) created before to release the extension.

Happy coding. :)

I say keep it simple. Limit the ad placements to a few normal positions (as mentioned in your orig proposal). Do not try to give tons of every option possible. That will only get you into trouble. You can always add more later, if reasonable. Don't "over-engineer" it and don't assume you have to please every user.
Has an irascible disposition.
