Off the top of my head I can think of a couple ways: Pull in the rendering script using the JSLink property of some other object, for instance, a Content Type, or a Field that will always be shown.

If they are officially supported, is yet to be reviled. But using PowerShell you can create a Document Set in a Document Set without going through the process of first creating a Folder and change the Content Type.

Document sets are generally reserved for groups of related documents, so I wouldn't recommend using these in your case. However, feel free to read Microsoft's own position on document sets ...

I'm a huge fan of a flat library structure. Other than securing a group of documents (which can still be done with a Document Set), folders bring nothing to the table imo. The way I do it is by: Sit down with each department in the company to gather a list of Content Types, based on their current files in a file share. Once I've got the list of Content ...

The NewDocSet.aspx page is application page in _layouts folder, you can’t custom through UI/designer. So you cannot use JSLink to render the NewDocSet.aspx.
