I think there is a difference between a style for submitting a 
manuscript to a publisher and a style for final publication. I 
understand many publishers want manuscripts submitted in double
spaced type, which they would never use when actually publishing the
book. Our discussion has been more about good final product than
initial submissions.

True, but with that we've moved quite far from the discussion about
what LO can and cannot do. As far as I can see, these
standards/conventions are about:
   font size
   line spacing
   paragraph indentation
   inter-word and inter-sentance spacing.

I realise LO can't be all things to all people, but what I've
understood so far as that LO can do all but the last point. With
justified text that last point may not be relevant, and it may not be a
good convention for final product, but for some people it will still be
relevant, and they should ideally have the choice. Is this something
that can be added to LO? Should there be an enhancement request for
this? Are there other points that need to be addressed in addition to
those listed so far? Has someone tested a regex search/replace for this
as a workaround (I think someone tried something that didn't work, but
it wasn't a regex)?

Just my R0.02
