I think the purpose of the text template module is to create intermediate artifacts that are consumed by other rules. This is also the reason for a configurable outputTag property. You can make the output a "final" artifact by customizing the product type manually as explained earlier. So I consider the current behavior to be the least surprising. But this is more my own opinion. If you can think of a good reason to adjust the additionalProductTypes property, then go ahead.
