This is my primary reason. Something like 80% of all SME material
that I get in Word is written with everything Normal and manually

The other reason is Geoff's. Normal is used as the basis for so many
other Word styles that any change in its format propagates to other
default Word styles as well.

I generally make it a point not to base any style I create in Word on
an existing one.
