I know, Phil, I had same reaction as Omni are usually very good at anticipating 'natural' things the user might want to do.
Following HappyCat's reply, I emailed this feature request to

One of the factors that determines what we add to our apps is the number of people that are requesting a given change, so thanks for requesting this. We really value your support!
...so send in a request!
(Here's mine FYI
In the documents it would be useful to have "New based on style" as an option along with "Duplicate Doc" or however it's phrased.)
In addition, it would useful to have a Themes drilldown in the same popover that the the whole doc styling is in. This might have "Theme: 'default'/'document'/'unsaved'>" and in the next drilldown the option to name&save the theme or choose from other themes already saved on this iPad.
Until OO add this feature, I'm going to create a collection of templates with minimal content to duplicate and fill in. All a bit to preplanned and not very Omni, I know, but at least I trust those guys to iron out omissions in their apps!
