Well, the real problem, reading through the deletion discussion, seems to be just that the template adds too much to the page ("This template adds 163.2 KiB to each of the 1,909 articles to which it is attached, and that is a big problem for anyone who is not using a broadband connection"), as opposed to it being too hard to maintain. So I don't personally think this is a good opportunity to plug SMW.
