(Maybe this was already discussed before.)

It would be nice if the default template that ships with LibreOffice would 
ship with visually attractive styles, and paragraph styles for commonly 
used blocks or admonitions, eg. listing-block, literal-block, note, tip, 
important, ...

It would make using OpenOffice by default more attractive without the need 
to look for existing templates and/or mess around with styles. I know one 
can already do this for themselves, but normal users shouldn't be exposed 
to it for basic usage. The current default styles just don't cut it :-/

Not just for Writer, but also for Calc, Impress, etc...
