At least with LaTeX the issue can somewhat be mitigated by an
intelligent LaTeX daemon like latexmk.  It monitors changes and when a
change occurs it only re-compiles the relevant parts.  I don't know if
this is smart enough to work on single file documents.  Org could
automatically export a new .tex file upon changes.  Latexmk would
update the pdf.

I don't know of a solution to ODT.
