By default, when I open Writer, the paragraph's style is "Default". The default
paragraph style should be "Text Body" because the paragraph style next a title
(Title 1, for example) is "Text Body".
In MS Word, the default style is "Normal" because the style next a title is

As a Workaround you could seva a template which has set "Text body" as first
paragraph. Assign this as "Default" template via File.Templates.Organize.

I support the idea as good practice.
But I expect that many users (Word..) will have problems with it.
So setting an own template as default, looks best to me.

@computerhotline : What do you think?

Alternatively, make the "Default" style ("mother of all styles") unappliable.
There're already lots of recomendations to "use 'text body', not 'default'". Or
present the user with the option of removing the "text body" (currently, the
default set of styles is immutable). Or make the option of mass-changing the
style references in style definitions. Generally, free the user from necessity
to deal with two functionally equivalent text styles.
