Tried to think of a plausible way this could be done, but couldnt come up with
one, so look forward to seeing your mockup.

The good thing about master slide mode is that users are modifying the
underlying styles like they normally modify direct formatting.

Doubt it would be easy to change to powerpoint's concept of master slides and
their child layouts, but it would be nice to assign a default layout to a
master slide. We currently have 3 main layout types - Title+Subtitle,
Title+Content, Subtitle

Would have to hear more about the idea to get what you mean.

Should likely be renamed Master Slide Element Styles for better clarity as i
always assumed it was a global style for the entire presentation, as thats how
paragraph and cell styles are, but actually they are per master slide styles.

I was confused on this as well previously.
