Is it just not necessary, or actually a problem? The excerpt of the
manual sounds to me as if the necessity to load xunicode explicitly was
removed only recently? In that case, maybe it is worthwhile to leave it
in the template for people with older TeX distros? OTOH, it's not
actually used in the template, AFAICT, it's just there for convenience?

What do you think?
