What are the ways to define a model record template?

If I have a model "my.records" with a few fields, and need to create a template, from which several records would be created in "my.records" at once, what options of implementing this do I have?

I am thinking about creating:

  1. A model "my.template.items", where individual template item records will be stored (with the same fields as in "my.records");

  2. A "my.templates" model, where each record would be a selection of records from "my.template.items" (each record in "my.templates" is a template);

  3. And a wizard, where I could select a template (a record) from "my.templates" and the wizard would make a record in "my.records" , copying rows from "my.templates" record into "my.records".

Is this a good idea or bad? Is there another way, or a convention to implement this in Openerp?
