      One of the things I find useful about the OpenOffice/StarOffice xml is that
      it seperates out your word metadata into a metadata.xml. I have my doubts if
      other products will do that at, least efficiently. another good thing is
      that it supports dublin core(no rdf as of yet, at least in word) so one
      could add to the metadata with already familiar syntax/tools/code.
      As I remarked earlier it would probably be best as a chained transformation,
      since the xml format star office uses includes a lot of internal references.
      I've found that can get sort of hairy to work with in one go.

      SO's native XML format is open and documented (actually it's a ZIP archive
      containing XML and other formats), so this is doable.

      Another option is to save as RTF and use an RTF-to-XML converter (upCast,
      logitran, majix, probably others).
