OK, so the spec is not unclear, but it's still cumbersome to implement IMHO.

It does. But it would be so much simpler if the family wasn't needed to uniquely
identify a style. Of course I have adjusted my implementation now, so the problem
is 'solved for me', but I still think that things would be easier if this wasn't needed
(and any OpenDocument file generated by KOffice will have unique style names
even across families).
