Unselectable checkbox in row

Description of problem:

There appears to be no consistent paradigm for a user to interact with table content.

Examples:

To perform an action on a 'Template' the user must mouse to the other side of the screen to select an icon for the current row.  Similar tables allow the user to select the identifier as a link (e.g. 'Name') to drill into detail, 'Templates'

Other tables offer a checkboxes that are not editable, but appear to be so (e.g. resource 'Monitor'/'Schedule' tab and subtab) while other tables are directly editable (e.g. Administer/roles/permissions)

FYI: Bug #714277 reports the issue with the templates page. the templates page was a quick reimplementation of the old portal-war struts page. Because it is a relatively rare page users interface with (compared to other parts of the UI) it was determined it was best to get something implemented and working quickly, as opposed to spending alot of time on UXD design and implementation, thus freeing up time to do more commonly used pages. 714277 can be used to track any refactoring of that page.
