Allow Theme Templates to have Statuses

Similar to how the Customizer allows you to save changes as drafts or to schedule them to go live at a later date, I believe that FSE theme templates could benefit from this.

One immediate use case that I've run into comes to mind: I want to use the default page template for my homepage, without having to manually go into a theme downloaded from the repository and making changes. All suggestions that I've had so far have been to edit the Front Page template, or remove it from the theme entirely.

While those are options that I can use as someone who regularly edits theme files, I don't believe that it is the most straightforward for users. An option to mark theme templates as a draft, or unpublished, would be a way to solve this problem from the dashboard itself. This would allow theme users to ignore templates that they do not want to use, without having to fully remove them from the theme.
