Okay. I would think it would be possible using the UNO-framework.
Check out this guy: http://mithrandr.moria.org/blog/447.html

He starts up a headless openoffice and uses the UNO-framework
to open documents and convert to PDF via the remote headless
openoffice instance.

Somehow it must be possible to make openoffice draw on a
custom canvas or frame and let that be the source for imagedata.
