Font styles are not applied uniformly by default to 'Heading x'; see LibreOffice_Writer_v188.8.131.52_Styles_Headings.png
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a new document;
2. Show Styles (F11) in hierarchical view, expand Headings group.
2. – From Heading 1 to Heading 3 font styles are identical. From Heading 3 to Heading 9 font styles alternate from bold to bold italic. From Heading 9 to Heading 10 font styles are identical.
Could uniformity be applied by default to styles?

Headings' font styles
I confirm the observation, but I won't change heading style.

Ricky, do you have some kind of standard in mind how headings are formatted? Otherwise, what's wrong with identifying levels via italic weight.
I did not know that something would be wrong with identifying levels via italic weight. I learn every day, don't I? Remember please those illustrations –Heading 1 to Heading 3 and Heading 9 to Heading 10–; they did presently show, to anyone, thus a developer, that it was obviously not according to the way you depicted it. Have you attempted to ignore that fact or trying to convince me to see something else that what it is? Hopefully a mistake.
I don't see a problematic issue here until a better solution for all headings is shown. For so many headings it's very hard to have a unique look for each to ensure that every heading level is self-explanatory to the user. Therefore I think it's okay as it is now.
But enhancements always are welcome to make LibreOffice a better software.
So let's close as WFM.
Using more than four headings is a crime anyway ;-)
