The problem with table styles is that you will need to change the definition of the Open Document Format, and that will need a lot of more coding as well for handling the new styles type. Just think of the necessity for downwards compatibility so that later versions of LibreOffice and Apache OpenOffice can read both files with and without table styles and you probably get the idea.

An easy workaround is to use copy & paste, if necessary from a dummy template file holding all the blank tables that you need.

A bit more involved would be a table wizard that allows you to select a table from a set of templates. That set should be built by another wizard that you run when you install Libre or when you want to add table styles. The wizard would use macros to insert and format the table.
