Hide *applied* styles in the list to prevent editing them is absolutely
useless. You always can select a text with the style and right-click it to edit
its styles. "Accidental" editing when you need to open a window, right-click
there, then do something in dialog and confirm is hardly "accidental". IMO
purely invented scenario.
I suppose that this is just another case where having N recent used styles
grouped at the top of the list would solve the problem.
