Take Draw, for example. Open a Graphic Style in the side bar and change the font colour to white in "Font Effects". Now go to the "Font" tab.

RESULT: There is no preview.

In Draw, you may, for example, want to use a white text with a black shadow (applied in the "Shadowing" tab) as a "highlight". But the preview still remains invisible.

In Writer, you may want a white text against a coloured frame or page, so the question of highlighting in the same Paragraph Style dialog does not arise. And in certain cases you may just want a white font to make it invisible on a standard white page.

Yep, the preview background colour should be adjusted so there is enough contrast according to the chosen font colour. This is more like an enhancement.
