example template showing the bug

Problem description: 
Due to this bug, it is possible to create a template which looks completely
different depending on which user interface language is set. This is highly
problematic as you have no guarantee that a template will look the same on all
office installations.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Change interface language to German and restart office.
2. Create a new document, add some text.
3. Add a new user defined style called "Default". Change its font to "Verdana".
Note that this don't change anything in your document as in german the default
style is called "Standard".
4. Save the document as .ott.
5. Change interface language to English and restart office.
6. Open the .ott file. Your document default style now has "Verdana" set as

Current behavior:
Predefined styles are named differently depending on user interface language.
Opening a template with a different user interface language set than it was
created opens the possibility that there are name conflicts between user
defined styles and predefined styles. This leads to different styles being used
depending on which language is set.

Expected behavior:
It should not be possible to define user defined styles which conflict with
predefined style names.

Note that this bug also affects LibreOffice. Bugreport here:
