     + Two styles missing for statistics and invoices with special care for first/last column and header/footer row resp. (Regina)

     + styles.xml is generated from a binary format which resides at /core/extras/source/misc_config/autotbl.fmt
     + enhancement request to replace binary format by xml in tdf#107560; workaround needed
     + the style is rather a template and accomplished by switches what attribute of the template is being used (Regina)
