[Libreoffice-ux-advise] to duplicate an existing style

You made me drill into the Style concepts (one has to do it once in a
lifetime... Thanks for the challenge), and answering to Friedrich:
"New" creates a new style that inherits attributes from the selected style
and is hierachically below it, for
- Writer Paragraph styles, character styles, frame styles
- Calc Cell styles
"New" creates an empty (Default) style for Pages (Calc, Writer) and
numbering (Writer). That is: no style hierarchy for them.
