You could also have a look at nbviewer. (nbviewer.ipython.org) 

Since 0.13.1+ you should be able to override any file of ipython notebook by creating a modified version in .profile_xxx/static/whatever.
not sure about template though.

We'll be happy to have you feedback to know what need to be done to help integration of notebook.

Looking forward to experience in integrating notebook, and contribution.
