I believe the template files have to be placed in ~/Library/Application Support/Scrivener though, and you don't open them directly.
janra, thank you!
I still couldn't change the file association (tried that already). But never mind, it didn't matter once you pointed me in the correct direction of where to put the thing.
There are a couple of steps missing, which may be obvious to everyone else, but they obviously weren't obvious enough to me, so:
1. The file path actually needs to be ~/Library/Application Support/Scrivener/templates
Note: you might have to create that last folder if you haven't mucked about with the templates before.
2. To get at the template just create a new document via scrivener.
