I have Split my Bibliographic Database enhancement proposals into 4 seperate proposals.       
My full proposal and links to relevant wweb based information is at       
Proposal 4   
Add Support for Document Style to be added to Document Properties - as an New Tab Box to    
Files>Properties>Styles. Also Use a Predefined Styles List to Set Bibliographic Citation    
and Bibliography Formats and Other Document Styles and Settings.    
I suggest adding Support for Document Styles To be applied to the whole document. It could    
be an new tab box called  Files>Properties>Tab Styles. This would allow the user to select    
from a predefined list of Document Styles. (We need to do a user survey to find a candidate   
 list to support, I have little idea what Europeans use). The tab box would also have a    
?Re-apply Style defaults? button to over-write used changes to settings. The List could    
include document styles as ASP, APA, MLA, Chicago,  etc.    
The election of a document style would load Bibliographic citation and Bibliography formats.    
Also other document styles and settings could be set as well. I have not researched this in    
any detail.) The Chicago style for example recommends double spaced text-body, Indented single   
 spaced quotation style, Single spaced lists tables and bibliography. This does not seem hard    
to implement as the selection of the document styles would just reset lists of    
default document settings.    
An Import Styles function could also be added. These importable styles could be developed separately  
 from the main OpenOffice release and easily added by the users. Endnote does this and them make them   
available to the general public at .   
If we could unscamble the Endnote format (it is not plain text - it may be compressed)  we your convert some the  
information directly.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
