Also, I then have to edit the CSS (would have to do anyway). And finally, I have to delete the page-template from the ePub itself.
You already "delete the page-template" as the first step
Wouldn't it just be easier to edit the page-template to make it "empty"? That way you don't need to remove every reference to it. I don't know if a truly empty file would work, but something like this probably would:
<ade:template xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:ade="http://ns.adobe.com/2006/ade" xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">
I've not seen any use of page-template (yet) that could not be done in CSS.
In post #60
I showed something. It's not really a page-template, but conditional styling, but it still uses the same file. I've used it to hide "oeb-page-head" elements from ADE, which otherwise puts them in the main text flow...
