If MS Word users can't tolerate plain text org-mode files then I can't
think of many shortcuts. This works well when bringing a docx back into

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
 (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.docx\\'" . docx2txt))

(defun docx2txt ()
  "Run docx2txt on the entire buffer."
  (shell-command-on-region (point-min) (point-max) "docx2txt.pl" t t))

ediff-regions-linewise might get the job done.  Within
that process, org-mark-subtree and C-u C-c C-w to quickly jump to the
relevant subtrees are great speed ups.

More generally, re-builder is a godsend for working out the regular back and
forth transformations you'll be doing.
