It would be nice if you could easily see as one of the views of styles (paragraph, character, and object) a hierarchy of which styles are based on each other. Like a cascade of styles. I work on long documents and books that use LOTS of styles and besides the normal view and alphabetical view, it would be nice to be able to "sort" by hierarchy, perhaps with the swivel arrow, like when you have different styles in grouped folders. For instance, we have "text" and then "text left" and "text centered," and so on, but they are all based on "text," and on down from there. . . . so it would help give a visual of the complicated structure of our styles and see more easily if I have my child styles based on the correct parent style.
Not a substitute, but you might find «Show Paragraph Based-on Script» (http://in-tools.com/article/scripts-blog/show-paragraph-based-on-script/) useful.
