That's possibly because you don't really need one. Or at least, it's easy enough to create the necessary xml by hand. Easiest way is to create a document like the one you want, and examine its structure, then make your code write something similar. Some quick work with perl's zip-file modules, and you're done. I've a number of programs that do just this.

I don't understand why or how this is complicated.  When I make a
general/global setting amongst others, I simply expect this setting to
be in effect regardless which document I open.

If this setting cannot be made general/global, then it needs to be clear
that it is per document --- not considering that some ppl might
nonetheless wish that a global/general setting for this exists.  And if
a setting which is per document overrides a general/global setting, I
should optionally receive a warning.

I sympathize. IMO the GUI is badly designed (iow broken), and the case sensitivity might better appear somewhere in the File|Properties dialogue. I'll not hold my breath though.
