Presumably it's 0 or more because it could be either? It's problematic to
make it mandatory to have a URI if you want the possibility of a template as
an extension, right?

If this was removed from the XRD document, what would the resulting
host-meta (or whatever) extension be to add it back? If it ends up just
looking the same, and there are other potential use cases, why not include a
generic element with a straw-man expression syntax and just allow for
replacing it with others once they're standardized?
