Sounds rather like a job for an extension.

I looked at HTML Tidy, http://www.html-tidy.org/ but unfortunately its simple command line options do not have a way to strip all the stuff you want. Using its API everything should be possible.

For now, you can use an online tool like https://html-cleaner.com/ - its default options will do exactly what you want! It seems to be using TinyMCE, a popular rich text editor, which is typical in CMSes.

My opinion as well. The question is if HTML editing is in-scope of an office suite or not. I see it as a nice-to-have but not core feature and would let the details such as this tidying to external tools. 

OTOH, do we really need these default settings? <p class="western" style="margin-bottom: 0cm; line-height: 100%"> If possible, I would export just a <p> when the default is used.

that's exactly what I meant.
