I would agree with this. We certainly have had several list messages 
from people who thought they were changing the current document but 
weren't, or thought they were changing all future documents but weren't.
I like the idea of two requestors, which rewards those who are farther 
along the learning curve, yet doesn't "punish" those who are not.
One could say "Current Document Settings" in its title, and have a 
checkbox for "Also apply to all future documents".
The other could be "Preferences > Document" and have a checkbox for 
"Also apply to current document".
