Look at the referenced bug reports, there are attachments to the reports showing
what has happened to my templates & archived docs. others have noticed this also.
To LO devs credit they patched v3.5.x? so that the double lines are no longer
so large that they hide data in the cells for archived docs. Newest bug is for
the double line style not being a close representation of previous bouble line
style, e.g. new docs with tables using that style will not match archived docs
with tables with that style.
As far as maintaining a page with the differences I think it is worth watching how
the new feature in LO concerning table,border line styles plays out. Not only did
it break backwards compatibility in LO, it departs how AOO renders those line
styles also. AOO does not render the double line style created in LO 3.4.x &
later(they are blank), have not tested other table line styles
