So my proposal is simply this. If there is text written already, and then a
user takes the time to select a style, then the entire style (all properties)
are applied, at which point these can be undone by manually changing things. 

For instance if you have a style that has size 20 font, bold and italic, but
you want 20 font, bold, not italic, you apply the style, you get what the style
promises (20, bold, italic) and then you can select the characters and remove
the italics - vs the other way around where by default you get some strange
unknown combination of the style applied, and then most users are left
wondering why the entire style was not applied.

I've been using LibreOffice for years and I had a hard time figuring it out -
as did many people on the user list. Imagine a "normal user" (not a power user,
not someone who joins mailing lists, chats, bugzilla, etc...) - we might as
well stop pretending like styles is a solution for the average user if that's
the approach we're going to take.
