 Similar to how the Customizer allows you to save changes as drafts or to
 schedule them to go live at a later date, I believe that FSE theme
 templates could benefit from this.

 One immediate use case that I've run into comes to mind: I want to use the
 default page template for my homepage, without having to manually go into
 a theme downloaded from the repository and making changes. All suggestions
 that I've had so far have been to edit the Front Page template, or remove
 it from the theme entirely.

 While those are options that I can use as someone who regularly edits
 theme files, I don't believe that it is the most straightforward for
 users. An option to mark theme templates as a draft, or unpublished, would
 be a way to solve this problem from the dashboard itself. This would allow
 theme users to ignore templates that they do not want to use, without
 having to fully remove them from the theme.
