are overlooked by the l10n team (e.g in the Character > Font Effect
dialog, there is Overline _c_olor and Underline _C_olor and this is the
same for several dialogs)

It would be worth to create a wiki page that summarizes all these rules - LO
should use the Gnome rules (AFAIK), but there is a lot of specific issues:
for example, descriptions of Calc functions in UI are quite messy because of
different wording ("Returns...", "Calculates...", "Value of...") or
parameter names (capitalization etc.).
Of course the UX team should be also involved.

It is OK to fix new strings, also it is OK to fix obvious typos
anywhere. But we should refrain from re-phrasing old messages. It
would make a lot of unnecessary work for translators, and loss of
translation for unmaintaned languages. IMHO we have more important
things to do, than unify ("Returns...", "Calculates...", "Value
of...") or ("cannot", "couldn't", "could not") or whatever.
