I looked at converting documentation for another project to Docbook.

The roving OOXML scandals seem to have DDOS'd XML developmers, including
those previously developing Docbook, which is stuck at v4.5 with 5.0
being stalled.

ODT can be put in revision control systems.  The blob you are used to
seeing as OD* is a zipped directory of many files.  You could have the
revision control system unzip everything on the way in.  You get
something like this, with various embedded objects getting their own files:

        drwxr-xr-x 10 lars lars   200 2009-11-10 12:41 Configurations2
        drwxr-xr-x  2 lars lars    60 2009-11-10 12:41 META-INF
        drwxr-xr-x  2 lars lars    60 2009-11-10 12:41 Thumbnails
        -rw-r--r--  1 lars lars 27097 2009-10-12 19:27 content.xml
        -rw-r--r--  1 lars lars    62 2009-10-12 19:27 layout-cache
        -rw-r--r--  1 lars lars   876 2009-10-12 19:27 meta.xml
        -rw-r--r--  1 lars lars    39 2009-10-12 19:27 mimetype
        -rw-r--r--  1 lars lars  8197 2009-10-12 19:27 settings.xml
        -rw-r--r--  1 lars lars 11240 2009-10-12 19:27 styles.xml

That is one way.  I don't know if it is currently practical, but it has
been theoretically available for ages.

Another way would be to save as a flat XML file.  That will put
everything, including images, into a single file.  The images end up
like this:
