I used wordperfect a lot, and I can tell you I never used nor saw
explicit line ends, except at the end of each paragraph, as expected.
I think that type of text must have been written by people that had
been using typewriters all their life. On any wordprocessor you had to
forget that: I learned the trick within minutes of starting work with
wordstar the first time (well, maybe the first time I used it not for
code, but for text. I did not have a printer at the time).
I see that text "non-flow" when editing text directly in acrobat, though.
LyX has a feature to import plain text, joining consecutive lines into
a single paragraph.
OO/LO isn't exactly "obsessive" about
style sheets any more than
Firefox is. You can get by without them, but OO/LO is more
consistent in their application than MS-Word is -- any of the
versions of MS-Word, to my best knowledge.
I use styles in MS-W. I learned about the feature with Amipro, I
think. I can't understand how people can work without them.
