OOo has a field for doing that, which works fine within OOo (I use it all the time), but I can't remember whether it converts between OOo and Word. I've just added this to my list of things to check in OOo2.0!

So, if you're working in OOo only, you have the functionality, but if you have to share files with Word users, you might have a problem if the Word users used Styleref.
