    It would be useful to be able to programatically add new Text Elements to Map documents using arcpy.

    Ex: For map templates, add Text Element with size of map, then Make Thumbnail, followed by deleting the newly createdText Element with map size and finally save the map.  This would allow users to see the map size on map templates similar to those that Esri provides.
