No. A style is unique. More than one paragraph might carry the same
style, but in that case they'll both have the same style

So if you have a paragraph with a style attached to it and you kill it
and then yank it to somewhere else and it has the same styles attached
to it.

The problem you're talking about does occur when you have 'embedded
structure', when you have a paragraph inside a list item for example.

But to be honest, I'm not sure how much that happens with OpenDoc and
Word. It certainly happens in these situations:

- tables
- lists

but both of those will require a little extra display work anyway. I
think anything embedded in a list or table will be free of any list or
table properties.
