New Blog Templates and Pro Sites

I am trying to use the New Blog Template with Pro Sites. I can create a blog template which has been extended to the correct Pro Site level. This means that when I set the premium theme along with the premium plugins activated and save it as a a template. However, once I go to create a new site from the template issues arise. Once the site is completed it redirects to the new dashboard which displays the newly created site but all of the premium menu item icons are not showing up. Also once refreshed all of the premium themes and plugins are no longer active and a downgrade is recorded in the Pro Sites log.

The ability to use the New Blog Template plus the Pro Site feature is a great start to improving the setup experience. Is there any way to get the two of them to work together?
