 * Default Layers
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=127286
   + add description to default layers
   + add this to the description (and let users delete/override)
   + show the description as tooltip on the tab
   + text from help or short as suggested by Pedro
   => do it, with short tooltips

 * Select in(active) Layer
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=127283
   + Add option to layers, to prevent selecting objects on inactive Layers, also if the layers are not locked (Cor)
     + different approach handy:
       you can switch to and work on layers in complex files, with many layers, without having to lock, or unluck the layers on each time you switch layer.
   + selectable on/off on the object level makes no sense; way too many and inconvenient to switch on/off (Heiko)
   + 'lock all other' layers might be a valuable addition
   + some cornerstones with, for example, groups spawn over several layers (Regina)
   + or WFM as layers can be toggled locked (and are thereby non-selectable)
     + vote for WFM (Heiko)
   => comment and ask OP for use case

 * Styles: Default Style is to generic
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=132137
     + Calc: Default (Cell Style) and Default (Page Style)
     + Draw/Impress: Default (Drawing Style)
   + nothing speaks against this ideas
   => please do it

 * Calc lacks several fields available in Writer
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=132104
   + many are available under Format > Page > Header/Footer > Edit (Cor)
   => WFM

 * "Replacements and exceptions for language:" (AutoCorrect d.box) should follow "Default languages for documents: Western" (Options)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=55083
   + ui, locale, and document language can be set independently => WFM
   => WFM

 * Branding for 7.0
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130778
   + image at start center too large? (Stuart, c23)
     + the image is now scaled initially to 50% of the view size
     + looks good (Cor)
   + splash screen difference normal/dev build
     + use only dark or only white variant
     + both are fine (Cor)
   + remove splash screen completely
     + disagree (Heiko, Cor)
   + use grey scale image on start center
     + monochrome is not the UI default, so -1 (Heiko)
     + wouldnt prefer grey scale (Cor)
