Hi Nathan I agree with your proposal of renaming style by properties. 
Users don't understand they also inherit labels, metadata and so on when
loading a style. 

By the way, I think some improvements can be made for reloading style use
case. Problem occurs (maybe occured, didn't check recently) when user want
to transfer graduated or single value style classes from one column to
another. Copying style from another table often leads to that situation,
where field or expression is not in target table.   I know this can be
tricky since graduated classes are in autosync with numeric data. 
Another issue occurs when geometry type is not the same. Maybe we could save
at least color when reapplying style (from point to polygon for instance). 
This was my small thread highjack ;-)
