Yes. I like this idea. Add my vote to the list.

Yes, one can certainly create a "dummy" document that simply contains a large number of styles, but it seems like these sorts of things never happen despite best intentions.

If all I might want to change is font size or line spacing, having the rest importable in an easy way helps my workflow considerably.
