Well this implementation had styles sets which i referred to as group styles in
the description, but also allowed the user to play with a variety of different
styles for different parts of the document and then likely they would tweak it
to match with similar colors if thats what they wanted. With styles sets, you
cant mix and match different parts of one style set with another, which is
possible with this implementation.

Yes the most important feature missing from the sidebar in writer's properties
tab is style selection (bug 73071). If its possible to implement iWork Pages'
mechanism of showing that a paragraph style has been modified by direct
formatting and provide an easily means of updating it, i think it would be a
good feature to have in the sidebar. In my first mockup of the sidebar
properties tab (bug 83830), i had an update button next to the drop down.
