Citation templates might be a good start, as they are frequently copied between projects. That said, is it already agreed upon _where_ they will be put? The task title implies this but I don't see any discussion which came to a consensus on that question.

No. It is useful to know what to do before deciding how to do it :)

https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikidata/2017-June/010885.html , which appears in the task description, has a query.

Here is the query from that email, and leaving aside the LQT and user/babel templates (not that they don't need to be globalized, but are at least all of a type), the top bunch are:
