Just opened a document in Writer and, as I expected, it displays the 
document name at the top of the window. Like Word, like WordPerfect, 
like pretty much any word processor I know. Iirc, WordPerfect added 
"(unmodified)" or something like that after the document name until you 
actually changed the document.

Dunno how easy this would be to implement, but can't you make the code 
that tracks whether the save button should be enabled, update the 
document name as displayed in the top of the window? It's also nice 
because it tells the user at a glance whether the document is the 
original, or a modified version. Actually, isn't this almost exactly the 
way you know whether the document is read-only or not already?
