Still worth keeping cn=rootdse and cn=templates?

As I move on to more strict schema checks, the cn=rootdse and
cn=templates entries in the Samdb are becoming increasingly painful.
This is because they contain attributes not present in the schema, and
don't have an objectClass.

I'm wondering, should we move these to a different database, or somehow
ignored by the module chain?

For the rootdse case, it would be possible to rename cn=rootdse to
@ROOTDSE, but what should we do with cn=templates?
