Discussed this topic at the ESC talkl yesterday and devs are rather pessimistic
regarding feasibility. From the UX POV I can imagine to click one table and
another on the same page but not 20. A possible solution could be the Navigator
listing tables separately and you select only those objects in this list.
Though, what do you do then? I mean copy/paste without surrounding text sounds
not like a common use case and applying a style after inserting is not the
supposed workflow. As said before you also don't select all text paragraphs
only and change the style from Default to Text Body.

So while the issue is clear the recommendation is to format properly in the
first place or create an extension for this special use case (applying a style
rather than multi selection). Shouldn't be too hard to iterate over the
document and apply a certain table style to objects. We have a very friendly
community keen to help you with this at askbot.
