tdf#124770 sw layout: handle Word's take on italic formatting vs text break
When it comes to finding out if a piece of text fits the currently line
or not, Word simply measures the text width and the line width, and
decides if we fit or not. This can have an effect that italic text (e.g.
a "H" character) is slightly over the margin, but simplifies the layout.
Writer tries to reserve a bit more space, so italic text is kept inside
the margin, which leads to different layout in edge cases.
This somewhat arbitrary "reserve a bit more space: decrease the usable
line width by height / 12" mechanism was there since the initial import.
Reuse a related compatibility flag (tab-over-margin, already set for
imported-from-Word documents) to avoid this compensation to match what
