I think that a custom page creater sounds like plugin territory. It's something that would be more beneficial if it didn't get lost when you moved to a new theme. Having a possible custom post type formatted in your theme might be okay if you aren't defining the custom type (I.e. Woo commerce layout in theme but not incorporating any of the plugin functions)
