So this style information is kept and used across a complete reload?
Maybe a variable is set using defvar? (That only sets variables whose
value is void.) In any case, it's apparently still less simplistic
than I imagined.

Probably yes. I have had a quick peek into the org-mode source files,
but even where the variable is used was not exactly obvious to the
naked eye. - In any case, it looks like the variable is not meant, or
at least not designed, for on-the-fly customization, but maybe there
is another way. (Before you start hacking the whole thing.)

By the way: I referred to the other poster as "Eli" (believing it was
Eli Zaretski who wrote the other posts). It was really somebody
apparently called Lee - my eyes had confused two header lines. My
apologies to both!
