Word, "Changing the number format for this list updates the style"

None of the helpful guidance for this message from Microsoft Word pointed out that the underlying problem is that "Automatic Update" is turned on on various of the style elements in the template, so e.g. changing a bulleted list to a numeric list changes all of the lists in the entire document, but also numbering mysteriously fails to reset. Quite why anyone would do such a thing is a mystery to me, but the fix for Word 2007 is:

Lists should now work correctly.
