--- Comment #7 from Kenneth Hanson <khanson679 at gmail.com> ---
I've been inheriting the header and footer styles as Regina suggests for a
while now. I did the same for the List 1/2/3/4/5 families as well, essentially
just to get them out of the way, but I refrained from going any further.

I'm very much in favor of adding a mechanism for grouping styles in the
hierarchical view based on their intended use, and to use this mechanism to
better organize the standard styles. Ideally, it should be possible to collapse
these groups as well. This would be an improvement over switching between the
current filtered views.

But I think this needs to be separate from the inheritance system, because the
styles in a particular group do not necessarily have an formatting properties
in common. Also, there could be a need to inherit styles from two different
groups. We should consider whether we allow such styles to be displayed
separately, obscuring their relationship, or whether child styles should be
kept with the parent, reducing the usefulness of the groups.
