Considering that it is the rough grind, I can't help but wonder what advantage there would be to using anything more precise than a template. Templates don't have that modern age cachet, but testing "figure" on a rough grind seems like a monumental waste of time.
Only useful thing I can think of is being used as an experimental method to show how much things change, even from wet to wet.
Now having said that, I have a real suspicion that many of us end up with rough grinds of really strange shapes. With all the different methods we use, pipe flanges, cast iron frying pans, small rocks and the like, it wouldn't be surprising.
