This is a difficult shortcoming that I feel is complicated by differences in the way indents are defined / catered for under ODF and OOXML. It should be easy to define borders and indents for paragraphs of multiple style in a manner that is unrelated, or at least related only at the request of the user, but unfortunately this is not the case.

This is also one area where the relationship between paragraph styles and list styles is made more complex than it needs to be e.g., as both use separate definitions for indents. By way of example, it should be relatively straightforward to style content like:

separate indent and border definitions

... but sadly this generally requires use of either a table or the suggested workaround by @Oldbwl.
