Everything that you get from LaTeX: structure markup instead of
spaghetti formatting, parameterized formatting, etc...

Instead of clicking through dozens of dialogboxes for each and every
line of text, slide title, list item, figure, etc. to get everything the
way you want it, you just change a few parameters once for the whole
document and that's it.

That's where styles, templates, master slides etc. comes in. Haven't you heard 
of them? They give you ability to define paragraphs by their meaning in 
document structure and change parameters once for the whole document.

As far as I know, you can apply direct formatting in LaTeX as well. But this 
is possible, not necessary. Even if LO encourages users to use direct 
formatting (by exposing icons on toolbar), it is still totally optional.

Or did I miss the part where you pointed out advantages of LaTeX approach to 
document structure in comparison to LO?
