Comment(by ryan):

 We could turn this into a general template loading mechanism that would
 replace Page Template.  Register template files for a given query and
 "type" setting.  For page template back compat, we check the old meta
 setting and see if the template there corresponds to a registered one.
 For themes that use the registration API the Page Template headers could
 be ignored so that we don't show both.  Themes could remove the Page
 Template headers once they are no longer concerned with < 3.1 back compat.

 Some possible API:

 // Register a template to be loaded for single queries for a particular
 post type
 // where the post has a given template_tag.
 register_template_file($template_tag, $post_type, $file);

 register_template('aside', array('description' => __('Short,
 inconsequential statement about what you just ate.'), 'name' =>
 __('Aside'), 'post_types' => array('post', 'page') );
