I was thinking that this could benefit more reviewers, specially those who review less frequently or are newer to reviewing, if a link to a reference review template was added to Packaging/ReviewGuidelines that anyone could make use of.

Anyway if noone else wants to "throw the first stone" I could open a draft wiki page where we can flesh it out.

I don't think we need that. If you have items that are not on 
they could be added, but I don't think that a template would be more
useful than the existing list, indeed it is up to the reviewer to pick
what he thinks is important. Put it otherwise, growing his own list
based on this page is, in my opinion, an important step in becoming
reviewer, and a preexisting template could only hurt since the reviewer
wouldn't make the effort to appropriate the guidelines.
