OpenDoc and svn

Just been trying out svn 1.2.3 as an alternative to Serena, and OpenOffice 2.0
as an alternative to MS Office. Most of what I've seen is totally compelling,
but here's a thing: I want to embed keywords (Rev, for instance) in
documents, so they become self-identifying.

I've found Jani's post about fixed-width keywords, that's an excellent
addition. It would permit embedded keywords in .doc, .xls etc. However,
OpenDoc (if I've understood correctly) uses a zipfile, with the plain text in
a .xml that then gets compressed.

If svn could deal with this file format, it would be superb. Alternatively, is
there a workaround by treating the .odt "file" as a tree?

Background: I work in the aerospace industry, where product support often
lasts > 25 years - we think OpenDoc is the best thing since ASCII...
