It could be that you could learn new way to use styles.

It's efficient to use styles because they can be edited in only one place
at any time in the document's life, and this changes the whole layout design.
When shifting to another doc,
you dont have to delete all styles and recreate them from scratch :
you can just edit the styles properties that dont fit the new project layout,
keeping the whole styles architecture.

Of course, it wont be usefull in case your new document's style architecture
is totaly different.
