If you don't need WYSIWYG, you can edit them just visiting files in Emacs
in their source format.  OpenOffice has two XML formats .odt and .sxw,
and AbiWord has the format .abw which is XML as well.  How else do you want
to edit these documents without WYSIWYG?

Emacs already has a XML parser (`xml-parse-file' in xml.el), so this is
not a problem.
