OpenOffice (like most office suites) have a "record changes" function.
It also supports multiple versions of a document inside a single ODT
file. You can also do comparisons between two ODT documents from
inside OpenOffice. So there shouldn't be any problem collaborating
with others using ODT files.

Trying to do a 'svn diff' might be an issue. Git has a filter that
converts ODT files to text before it shows such a diff, so in Git it
is not a problem either. I don't know if svn supports such a feature.
