Statistics from AUTH48 XML (insert standard disclaimer):

style=full    1185  (also the default)
style=all       28
style=headers   40
style=empty     27

So styles other than the default style are used in practice, but not a 
lot. That being said, I'd be surprised if people wouldn't want similar 
kind of control once we can actually produce non-ugly tables...

Best regards, Julian
