For the most part, templating examples can be switched to the .format() style but shouldn't be switched to f-strings.  The former technique is still necessary if someone wants to move templates to an external file or if they need to use gettext() i18n, f-strings don't work well in the latter case.

Also note, there are no plans to completely remove old-style formatting.  AFAICT, it will be around forever, so people still need to see some examples of each.
