I see. Still, we currently have a problem in that styles for tables work
relatively well providing we don't create a table.
And with the kind of situation Jonathon describes, I think we not only
need styles that work well within a table (i.e. header for table line 1
followed by table body for other lines), but we also need table styles
or, to put it clearly, styles OF tables. So one would call, for example,
table style 1 and obtain a table with 5 columns of 5, 6, 6, 6, 10 picas,
user-defined borders and spacings, user-chosen styles in each cell, etc.
I see the programming challenge but the wonderful possibilities.

On the other hand, tables rarely repeat themselves:
How repeatable tables are, depends upon the user. I, for one, wish that
there were table styles. (I have a dozen or so documents with 500+
tables in them, all of which need to have the same presentation markup.)
I have been reminded it already exists (thanks Marc). But I also
remember the last time I used character styles, they didn't always work
the same way. For example, sometimes I simply got "+ Bold", while at
other times, it seems the entire character styling information was
remembered (so it would also change font, character stretch, colour...).
That was back on OOo version 3.1.x or 3.2 on Windows XP.
– partial character styles (and maybe partial paragraph styles): for example, "Strong" (or "accented")
might simply defined as "whatever
paragraph style and font styles are already applied" + Bold, and "note"
might be defined as "85% of height in grey";
if you are requesting what I think you are, then clearer documentation
is what is required --- at least for styles used in writer.
