in my eyes, it should only be possible to set it in the document 
settings and not in the new file dialog.

who thinks about it, when creating the file?

this morning, i've submitted a ticket concerning a -- possible -- 
cleanup of the file > new dialog...


and one of my suggestions is to make this value "document settings"-only.
you will, then have to define a template for layouts that you use often 
or go into the document settings and change for the specific document.
