When opening/importing a KML layer (or other via OGR), would be super helpful to include as one of the fields the OGR_STYLE (i.e. styleURL in KML).
Would help maintaining feature-specific styling where different features in the same layer have different styles in the source file, since then can use Categorized symbology on the imported layer.

Can work around by manually converting the kml using commandline, e.g. ogr2ogr -f GPKG -sql "select *,OGR_STYLE from FolderName", but it's an unnecessary hassle esp. if you have to do it for each folder.

Thanks for a great product!
