I looked at converting documentation for another project to Docbook.
The roving OOXML scandals seem to have DDOS'd XML developmers, including
those previously developing Docbook, which is stuck at v4.5 with 5.0
being stalled. http://www.docbook.org/schemas/
ODT can be put in revision control systems. The blob you are used to

That is one way. I don't know if it is currently practical, but it has
been theoretically available for ages.
Another way would be to save as a flat XML file. That will put
everything, including images, into a single file. The images end up
