I try to achieve this "minimal styling" step by step.

One example: I usually do not use padding. In one book, I have 12 paragraph styles (out of 12) with the argument padding:0.. I wonder if it would not make sense to factorize it and give this argument to body instead of repeating it so many times...

Another example: I have a well defined main paragraph style (I tag it only with the letter p). Out of this one, I created many others with just a small difference: either indent, or margin, or font-style, or font-size... Why repeat all the p arguments?
p class something does not mean p with a difference?
