Absolutely. I have proposed to have a "create style" button (to which 
you could also set a keyboard shortcut) right in the texdt tab of the 
Properties palette. A similar button in the Color tab could bring up the 
Edit Color dialog. The idea could be extended to other dialogs, keeping 
in mind that a tool is readily available when and where there are most 
chances that you need it. What we want to avoid are round trips 
involving too many mouse movements (hand-eye coordination when not 
necessary takes down productivity).
