Not by necessity, by design. MS decided would be the default template, and Normal would be the default style.

Nope. As soon as you get the file back, your own template is applied, and all your styles regain their intended definitions.

All this is assuming, of course, that you use the tool as it's designed to be used.

Exactly, which is why you *use* the built-in styles, including Normal; save them in a template that's applied to the document and available to every writer; and follow up occasionally to see that everyone's playing nicely.
