Are you suggesting something like this?:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(defun +org-capture-read (&optional arg)
  "completing read interface for org-capture template selection.
ARG is passed to `org-capture'."
  (let (parent)
    (when-let* ((templates
                 (mapcar (lambda (template)
                           (let* ((keys (car template))
                                  (parentkeys (car parent)))
                             (if (= (length template) 2)
                                 (progn (setq parent template) 
                                 nil)
                               (cons (concat (when (and parentkeys 
                               (string-prefix-p parentkeys keys))
                                               (concat (cadr 
                                               parent) "/"))
                                             (cadr template))
                                     keys))))
                         org-capture-templates))
                (selection (alist-get
                            (completing-read "capture template: "
                                             (mapcar #'car (delq

                                             nil 'require-match)
                            templates
                            nil nil
                            #'string=)))
      (org-capture arg selection))))
#+end_src emacs-lisp
