Bug report #21327

[Style] Export --> Save as QGIS Layer style File should allow to select style categories (and output format)

Open a layer properties dialog
Expand the Style menu and choose "Save Style": you get a "Save Layer Style" dialog in which you can select the categories you want to keep, the file format and location
But in the Layers panel, right-click the layer and select "Export --> Save as QGIS Layer Style File": you get the full style, no way to pick what you want.

It could be nice to align the tool with the former:
- allow SLD export next to QML's (otherwise rename the function to "Save as QGIS QML (Layer) Style File" to be coherent with the terms used in the other dialog and nobody will expects sld)
- allow to pick categories to save

IOW make it a real shortcut to the style saving.

Maybe... It think it's a missing feature as the save style behavior has changed recently (allowing to pick categories)
