Real Confluence page templates

We all now the nice feature of Confluence that are Page Templates.

They are nice and together with Page Metadata, we can create nice structures where the child pages contain page metadata and the parent page creates a nice report gathering data from the underneath pages.

However, this has a fundamental flaw. When I want to add some metadata to the pages, I need to edit all of those child pages one by one, to add the value in there. So, I was wondering if it is possible to create the child pages not FROM the template, but to USE the template for editing (so that changing the template would affect actually the child pages).

Any idea on solving that?
