Never mind, I found the additional WindowSize options that affect the 
Create Slide Show palette as well as the embedded Style Sheets palette.

That helps enormously: I was able to modify both the new slide behavior
and amend to Style Sheets palette for slide shows.

One problem is left: With my added entries on both palettes, the window
sizes for each is not quite tall enough to include everything.  Where in
the code is that changed?

In my text editor I searched for WindowSize but that only seems to
affect other things, e.g., the window size for a "New Template" notebook
opened from the corresponding button.

(It's REALLY hard to parse long Mathematica expressions without all of
the Front End's help.)
