I am currently working on a converter that converts directly from
Orgmode to OpenDocumentText (.odt). It is likely to take another 1-2
months before I get a preview version out.

Please watch out for announcement in this list.

Looks like you are particularly interested in reproducing Math
equations. At this stage, it is not clear to me how I would support
equations. Since the converter is built from HTML exporter it would
handle the equations just the way HTML exporter handles equations.

For now, AFAICS, people either resort to

1. Orgmode->HTML->OpenOffice 
2. Orgmode->Docbook->Openoffice

Have you tried any of (1) and (2). What are your observations
particularly wrt equations?
