Indeed the old SET value of 0x0030 being DONTCARE|DEFAULT doesn't make
much sense. A SET value may not only indicate a non-default pool item
value, but also an explicitly set default value of the pool item, hence
maybe the DEFAULT bit value, but DONTCARE doesn't fit there, it looks
like that or'ed mask never was intended and no place uses it.

I checked places with SfxItemState::SET that do not use == or != or
assignments or return, leaving comparisons with < or <= or >, and these
seem not to rely on the bit value.

Also places that use SfxItemState::DEFAULT or SfxItemState::DONTCARE
don't use a bit mask to extract a value, so we seem to be good.

I'll push the patch.

Last, even the comment at SfxItemState says "These values have to match
the values in the css::frame::status::ItemState IDL" ...
Maybe the SfxItemState values should be initialized using the IDL
constants as a follow-up.
