How do you trap for an invalid create feature template item?

I'm trying to trap for an invalid create feature template item. I've attached a screen shot of a create feature template that has an invalid drawing symbol.

You get this by doing the following:
Create a unique value renderer on a feature layer and then create the feature templates using the renderer. Next, delete one value from the previously created unique value renderer. The create feature template will then remove the symbology for the deleted value. When you right click on the template without a symbol you get the attached screen shot showing the "Drawing Symbol Will not draw!" message.

So, how do I check if a template is valid for drawing? I already have events in place for capturing a template when it is clicked.
