Mere speculation but it looks like the styles may have been defined with the
intent of being post-processed by other software. For example, if you were
to save the file as Rich Text Format, it might be easier to convert the
content to, say HTML, if the script could easily find an 'H2' string, etc.
There may have been other target formats as well corresponding to the other
segments of the style name.
