For god's sake did you even read what I wrote??

I'm not talking about disallowing ANYTHING that is currently allowed. I'm only
talking about setting DEFAULTS for a new document, for future documents, or for
the parts of the current document that haven't yet been touched (e.g. cells
that haven't been applied a format or even entered a content).

That is: you start creating a new document and you want all the defaults to be,
let's say, in Italian. You should be able to set that in one place, not a
dozen. You shouldn't go like "Ok, so now let's select a cell and format it as a
number... wait a moment, why do all the options have a comma instead of a dot?
Oh f**k, this is still in English, I have to set the locale too" and so on.

Then you still have all the options to change each thing individually for each
cell, sheet, paragraph, or whatever.
