Your use case is very practical and very desirable.

And yes, producing a single-file ODF document (XML format) would work
great for similar applications, including creation of feature-test
documents, etc.

There are major practical reasons why the single-file XML format
is not the default format.  It is odd that it is not a supported
format, however, especially for input.

I believe there were, at some point, separate transform scripts that
could be added to to accomplish input and output of
the single-file format.  I don't know where those are and if they 
still work.  

It is an useful thing to research. I will dig into my files, but
I am not hopeful. 

Keep asking around.

I am writing an AsciiDoc backend to produce ODF files directly from 
AsciiDoc. I was also looking for a flat file importer. Currently 
LibreOffice and OpenOffice want to open such a .fodt (or .xml) file as 
text rather than an pure ODF file.

Flat ODF file support would be useful to anyone producing/converting 
simple ODF files, and can help with learning/debugging ODF. It could be
very useful to the larger ODF development community.

Kind regards,
