Perhaps you like to add JUnit tests to reproduce the above problems as
regression tests?

The replacement might be useful as well.
Think of the some semantic groups of styles in ODF, as the 9 levels of
heading or lists, which always have the same naming in some ODF
Sometimes the use case is that the old style have to be replaced, think
of switching to a new Corporate Identity  & Design. In this case the old
styles should no longer be usable.
