I pushed a fix to my staging branch.

If you set the variable as below

(setq org-export-odt-styles-file
      '("~/tmp-orgmode/Thu Thong Bao - Trai Ve Nguon XV (2011).odt"
        ("styles.xml" "Pictures/10000000000002740000034B83A526F3.png")))

the styles.xml and header images would get copied on to the generated
odt file. 

If the desired styles.xml makes no references to other files (as in the
example above) then the above variable could be set to 

(setq org-export-odt-styles-file
      "~/tmp-orgmode/Thu Thong Bao - Trai Ve Nguon XV (2011).odt")


(setq org-export-odt-styles-file "~/elisp/styles.xml")

In both the case org-odt's native styles file will be replaced by the
one that is specified (implicity or explicitly)
