I believe that templates for Designate were taken from another OpenStack
package. I can't tell which one (it's been too much time), but I'm sure
it is the case.

If you can produce a diff to fix the package templates, I'd be happy to
apply it, but right now, I'm not sure how to detect the differences
between the strings in an efficient way. Advices welcome.
