Comment (by alex27):

 > Perhaps the add_theme_support() call could allow for a description from
 the theme letting them know about their implementation. A distributed
 theme isn't going to be able to line up post slugs or IDs.
 What if theme author could declare the default template that static page
 should use in the `add_theme_support`?

 Themes with custom front page usually include  special front page
 template, and users need to get out of Customizer and choose that template
 for the static page they just assigned as front page. What if theme author
 was able to suggest a default template for that page, that is applied
 automatically (but of course can be changed from page edit screen)?
