Template Editor has no URL to access it

Description

The Template Editor is loaded into the existing Edit Post screen.

However the loading happens entirely through a user action in JavaScript. Meaning that when you reload the page, you're looking at the Content Editor again.

Obviously this makes it nearly impossible for developers to style the content of the editor.

But more importantly this breaks an existing convention in WordPress. You cannot construct a URL that will direct users to the Template Editor.

Both the Content Editor as well as the future Site Editor have their own URL. In addition it should be possible to pass additional arguments to the Site Editor to either load an existing template, or create a new one.
