A custom <AssemblyName> value (including one with template parameters) as used in a project file for a Visual Studio Project Template is ignored and simply replaced by the user specified project name.

The attached file has a custom <AssemblyName> which when used as a template (due to being copied to a dir like %UserProfile%\Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Visual C#\), the assembly name is ignored.
