To hold all the transactions in the schedule. That's what accounts do: hold transactions. It was a way to reuse the data structures.

For each scheduled transaction, I can see that a "BANK" account is created
as a child of the root_template, with as name the guid of the scheduled
transaction. This account does not have a lot of valuable information
(field or slots) at first sight.
What would be the role of this account ?
