A "componentization" like that might be nice "some-day", but I don't 
believe LO currently has this ability.  (I'm not an expert on LO, so 
wait until I don't get corrected before running with this information.)

Depending on which GUI toolset you're using, you may have such a beast 
for simple formatting already at your disposal.  For instance, I'm aware 
that QT does, and I believe GTK does as well, although it may be 
available via third party code.

Good luck,
