Well a template system for osC....wow!!
One thing I would suggest is that the box class be dropped or totally re-written, so each box can have a unique look and be able to place the box, on the left, center, right side of the page.
Control and ease of implementation are key here, so that most people will have a simple control system for moving, removing, and layout looks for each box.
Use of box tops and bottoms should be built into the system, so both boxes and modules can have this feature available with ease of use.
As well, I would suggest an admin tool which will allow users to upload a complete layout and one button to install the layout, and one button to use the layout.
As for what should the new layout look like? well you started a thread on this already, and I really do not feel it is an important issue, when compared to the functionality of the system.
Last, I would look to a dynamic button selection system. Now that the Gifs, will be available to the public without additional licencing soon (if not everywhere now). A system which would allow you to pick which button to use could be done via a dynamic generation system, which would give more flexability and allow buttons to be created with ease.....
Just a few thoughts.....
