I have an idea how to change this without big code rewriting.
Lets add for character styles attribute "only changes" with checkbox in Styles 
Manager to set.
If that checkbox is set all form items are set to 0 or empty but grayed out 
(no disabled, just grayed), values with set some values are bolded to 
indication that these values will be applied.
In addition character styles with with option set cannot be used in other 
paragraph and char styles as base style and cannot be based on other styles, 
so if such style is used somewhere as a base for other style checkbox should 
be disable (with tooltip why), also styles with this option set should not be 
included in styles available as base for other. In style list such style 
should be listed with italic font or with gray color (whatever for indication 
that it is other kind of character style).

Other story is applying such char styles for text - I dont try to implementing 
this till now and I dont know how difficult it will be.
