I don't see a reason why an issue which is in there for ages (AFAIK) must be
fixed for 3.1 ... re-targeting to 3.x

fs->nn: The reason for the current situation is in ScTabViewShell::Notify, which
- upon a SFX_HINT_MODECHANGED notification - switches the form layer into design
mode when the complete document switches to "writable", and the alive mode when
the complete document switches to "read-only".

The former is certainly necessary, whether the latter is really the desired
behavior, I cannot judge - the issue claims it isn't.

My suggestion would be the following:
When the document is switched to "writable", then call "GetOpenInDesignMode" at
the FmFormModel. This property indicates whether or not the form layer should be
in design mode when the document is initially opened. Use this to decide which
mode to set the form layer to in the SFX_HINT_MODECHANGED case.

fs->os: If it is decided to implement the change requested by this issue (i.e.
don't force the form control design mode when a spreadsheet document is switched
from read-only to writable), then IMO the same should be done for text
documents, too.
