Multiple Sitecore EXM Root Managers and missing templates

One of the flexibility points of Sitecore EXM is its manager root. You can create as many of these as you want and each one controls the settings for how emails from that manager root will be treated. These are pretty easy to create and Sitecore Hacker has a nice run down on his Email Manager in Details post. There is something left out here though and left out in the Sitecore documentation as well. In theory you can create your root managers where every you want in the content tree. At least there is nothing that will stop you. However, if you don't create them in the right place you will see some odd behavior.
